A three-vehicle crash on the Howard Frankland Bridge on Saturday night injured two drivers and pushed a semi trailer up onto the barrier wall.
Around 9:45, 31-year-old Brandon man Omar Deleon's Nissan Altima was stopped in the left northbound lane on the bridge, because he ran out of gas, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Matthew Tucker, 36 of Tampa, hit the Altima with his Audi A4, and then rotated into the next lane, the FHP reported.
The Audi then hit a tractor trailer driven by Darryl Brown, 54 of Brandon, which jack-knifed and collided with the barrier wall, troopers reported.
Deleon and Tucker suffered minor injuries. Tucker was transported to Tampa General Hospital. Lanes closed until 12:45 a.m. Sunday.
