Howard Frankland Bridge traffic returns to normal after accidents

TAMPA — Traffic on the Howard Frankland Bridge was backed up Tuesday morning after two crashes caused serious congestion.

A three-car accident near the Tampa end of the bridge stopped northbound traffic just before 9 a.m., Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins said.

Shortly after, a second two-car accident near the same spot kept traffic at a crawl.

Both accidents were minor, and no serious injuries were reported, Gaskins said. A fire truck was blocking lanes of traffic on the bridge after the accidents.

Both crashes have since been cleared from the road, he said.
