A four vehicle crash halted traffic on the Bob Sikes Bridge over the weekend, per local police. A fifty four year old driver of a 2005 Ford F-150 pickup from Pensacola, Florida was going across the bridge and did not slow down his vehicle to traffic that had been stopped, per the Florida Highway Patrol.
