Sunshine Skyway Closed Early For Man Sitting On U Haul Truck
Sunshine Skyway closed early this morning for man sitting on U Haul truck. They git him down. Glad he’s OK. I was planning a motorcycle ride over the Sunshine Skyway this morning. When I turned on the TV we saw it was CLOSED southbound.
If you were trying to make your way south of St. Petersburg this morning, it was a tough go of it when all southbound lanes were closed at around 5am on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Erin Murray from Bay News 9 monitored the situation and posted to Twitter that a man climbed to the top of a parked U-Haul truck and sat. She says emergency crews came to the scene and were able to get him down safely. ABC Action News tweeted that he was put into a patrol car. Lanes reopened sometime around 8am.
When the bridge reopened, I did make the ride, only to be over run by more emergency vehicles.
