News: Separate crashes on causeway involved 11 cars, Clearwater police say

CLEARWATER, FL – Police said 11 cars were involved in two separate crashes on the Courtney Campbell Causeway Wednesday morning, WTSP reports.

 

This is an update to a previous story.

 

Eight cars were involved in the first accident at about 10:20 a.m. It occurred in the westbound lanes when police say a tractor-trailer did not brake in time for stopped traffic, resulting in a chain-reaction collision.

 

Two people were transported to area hospitals, while 14 others declined medical treatment.

 

Another crash with three vehicles involved occurred shortly before noon in the eastbound lanes of the causeway. One woman was hospitalized in that incident. Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening.

 

All lanes reopened to traffic about four hours after the initial crash.
