A crash on Thursday closed the Sunshine Skyway Bridge’s northbound lanes.
 
The crash occurred about 2:30 p.m. on the Pinellas County side of the bridge, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
 
The driver of a 2010 Chrysler Pacifica was approaching mile marker 14 when his right rear tire “malfunctioned,” an FHP report says, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.
 
The car left the road and struck a barrier wall, where it was engulfed by flames.
 
The FHP report says the driver wasn’t injured.
 
FHP reported all lanes were back open about 5:10 p.m.
