BRADENTON — A rush-hour traffic crash Thursday temporarily closed southbound traffic on the DeSoto Bridge.
Authorites on Thursday afternoon said the crippled vehicle blocking traffic will be removed shortly.
“There is a tow truck on the way,” Bradenton Police Capt. William Fowler said at 5:50 p.m. “Arrangements are being made to get it through to the accident.”
An in-depth report on the accident was not immediately available, but injuries seemed to be minor, said Bradenton Police Lt. James Racky.
