Four people in one SUV died after it was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on the Buckman Bridge about 2 p.m. Monday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Troopers say the investigation of the tragedy will keep the southbound lanes of the bridge closed through rush hour.
The FHP said two adults and two children in the SUV that burst into flames died. A second SUV was involved in the crash and three other people were transported to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the big rig was not injured.
