The Sunshine Skyway Bridge was closed for more than two hours Sunday until a reported suicidal person was taken into custody and authorities investigated a minor crash, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Officials received a call reporting the person around 8:15 p.m. Sunday, Sgt. Steve Gaskins, a public affairs officer with Florida Highway Patrol said in an email to the Bradenton Herald. The man was taken into custody around 10:45 p.m.
The northbound lanes of the bridge were closed until officials had the person in custody, according to Gaskins. He added the southbound lanes were also later closed due to a minor crash.
All lanes were reopened by early Monday morning, Florida Department of Transportation traffic maps show.
