ST. PETERSBURG — The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting that an accident with injuries is slowing northbound traffic on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge this afternoon.

Just before 3 p.m., troopers responded to a crash in the northbound lanes near the 8 mile marker. Troopers said a vehicle had collided with a sport utility vehicle and overturned. The SUV then collided with the inside barrier wall, then hit two other vehicles.

The crash closed all northbound lanes for a half-hour and now one lane is open, troopers said.

Troopers said several people have minor injuries but no one was taken to the hospital.
