Multiple people were injured in a crash involving a Jacksonville Transportation Authority bus and several other vehicles Tuesday afternoon.

The crash closed the Mathews Bridge in both directions about 4 p.m. Both westbound lanes opened about an hour later, but the eastbound lanes remained closed.

The wreck was cleared and all lanes reopened about 7:30 p.m.

The number of people injured, their names and conditions were not released at the scene.
