Crews work to clear the eastbound lanes on the Gandy Bridge Wednesday afternoon after a Miller Lite truck crashed into the concrete railing.
ST. PETERSBURG – Eastbound lanes of the Gandy Bridge were closed for about two hours Wednesday, Oct. 3, after the driver of a tractor trailer lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the concrete railing.

According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, Jeremy Nicholas Greathouse, 32, of Riverview, was traveling eastbound in a tractor trailer operated by J & J Taylor Distributing of Tampa when he lost control of the vehicle on the wet roadway. The truck was traveling in the outside lane and was about one mile east of Fourth Street N.

The truck deflected across both lanes after colliding with the railing. Then it collided with the inside concrete railing before coming to a rest jackknifed and blocking both eastbound lanes of the bridge.

The FHP reported that the eastbound lanes remained closed for about two hours as crews worked to remove the vehicle, debris and vehicle fluids. The Miller Lite trailer and its contents were not affected. Damage was estimated at $20,000. Greathouse suffered minor injuries.
