TAMPA — A motorcycle crashed into the back of a patrol cruiser parked Wednesday night along the Courtney Campbell Parkway, killing the cyclist, authorities said.
A passenger on the motorcycle was critically injured and transported to a hospital.

The crash was reported about 10:30 p.m. on the eastern side of the causeway's hump. The crash closed down eastbound traffic afterward. Tampa police said they were assisting the patrol.
The names of those involved in the crash have not yet been released.
