Be prepared when you hit the road. Here are some quick tips on what to do if you are in a car accident.

It was a slow start in traffic for some Monday morning, after a crash blocked lanes near the Green Bridge.

Emergency vehicles blocked two southbound lanes of Ninth Street West while responding to the crash around 8:30 a.m.

Sarasota Manatee Regional Traffic Management Center cameras showed vehicles backing up along the bridge until one of the lanes was reopened.

Motorists should expect delays in the area.
