Driver dies in crash with party bus on Courtney Campbell Parkway

TAMPA — A vehicle and a party bus collided early Sunday on the Courtney Campbell Parkway, killing the vehicle's driver, Tampa police said.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m., at a stoplight near a boat ramp past the Tampa Shriners Hospital, said Tampa police spokesman Lt. Brian Gant.

The vehicle was turning from the boat ramp on the parkway's south side to go toward Clearwater. The party bus, occupied only by the driver, was heading eastbound toward Tampa. It struck the turning vehicle, Gant said.

The vehicle's driver died at St. Joseph's Hospital. Police did not release the victim's name.

Police also did not name the driver of the party bus, and it was unclear whether that driver was injured in the crash. Police are still investigating which vehicle had the green light to determine who was at fault.
