A crash involving a semitrailer truck and at least four cars was being sorted out Tuesday morning on the Courtney Campbell Parkway.

The Courtney Campbell Parkway has reopened to traffic after a crash involving a semitrailer truck and at least four cars closed all eastbound lanes Tuesday morning.

Police and emergency responders were on their way after the crash was reported about 7:50 a.m. in eastbound lanes of the Tampa side of the bridge.

Some injuries were reported, but none were thought to be life-threatening, dispatch officials said.

State and local traffic officials reported all eastbound lanes were closed during the morning rush hour while workers cleared the accident.

The car sitting closest to the semi was crushed in the front and back; damage to the other cars didn't appear to be as severe.
