SUV Fire and Fire Apparatus Hose Cause St. Petersburg (FL) Traffic Issues

A bad accident tied up traffic for hours on Sunday afternoon on the Howard Frankland Bridge.

The accident started when an SUV caught fire on the southbound side of the bridge.

Firefighters arrived at the scene to extinguish the flames, and then as they were leaving, a hose fell off one of the trucks. The hose caused a van to lose control and crash into the median.

Crews were on the bridge for a while trying to clean up the scene, so traffic was blocked for about half a mile.
