Several injured in Tampa Bay area commuter bus crash; 1 woman critical


ST. PETERSBURG, Florida — Authorities say several people were injured in a Tampa Bay area commuter bus crash.

The St. Petersburg police reports that a 57-year-old woman lost control of her car at a bend in a road Thursday morning and moved into the path of an oncoming Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority bus.

Police say the crash left the woman driving the car in critical condition, but they believe a medical episode before the crash might caused her to lose control.

Of the 15 people on the bus, seven were taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.
