Clearwater police closed the Courtney Campbell Parkway for at least 30 minutes early Sunday after a two-car crash left one person critically injured.

The crash occurred at about 3 a.m. when a 1988 Nissan with three occupants pulled into the path of an eastbound 1989 Mazda, said Clearwater police spokesman Wayne Shelor.

The driver of the Mazda, Didien Edmund, 37, whose address is unknown, was treated for facial injuries and released from St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. The names of the Nissan's occupants were unavailable Sunday afternoon.

Shelor said one of the three was in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
