PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — Two were hurt after a crash involving a passenger bus early Friday morning on Interstate 75 in Pasco County, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP says around 12:10 a.m. a 21-year-old man lost control of his Pontiac for unknown reasons while driving south on I-75, south of SR-56.
The Pontiac hit a guardrail and then was redirected back into traffic where it hit the passenger bus also going southbound on I-75, authorities say.
The bus, driven by a 45-year-old man, was not carrying any passengers at the time, FHP noted. The impact of the crash caused the bus to go over the median, overturn and continue across into the I-75's northbound lanes.
FHP says the bus hit the outside concrete barrier wall causing debris to be ejected onto the exit ramp leading from I-75 to SR-56.
The driver of the bus received minor injuries and the driver of the Pontiac had serious injuries.
CORRECTION: This story has been updated to reflect that the bus involved was a passenger bus, not a greyhound bus as it was originally reported by the Florida Highway Patrol.
