Fisherman along the bridge jumped into the water to rescue the driver of the truck. Authorities said the man was taken to an area hospital. His name and condition have not been released.
The night before, a recreational vehicle (RV) lost control and went off the Howard Frankland Bridge into Tampa Bay. A short time after that accident, an SUV crashed on the same bridge near the 4th Street exit, landing in water as well.
An investigation into the Bayway crash is still ongoing.
