Wind is being blamed for a crash that closed part of Interstate 275 in Pinellas County this morning.
According to FHP investigators, a Brinks armored truck lost control after being hit by a gust of wind on the southbound Dick Misner Bridge, which is the approach to the Sunshine Skyway. The truck slammed into the inside concrete barrier wall, bounced into the wall on the other side of the lanes, then back into the inside wall again before rolling over.
The span was closed for nearly two hours, tying up traffic heading south out of St. Pete.
Two people inside the truck suffered minor injuries.
