PINELLAS PARK – A Pinellas Park man was critically injured Friday (July 13) after his car crashed into the back of a PSTA bus on Gandy Boulevard, according to the Pinellas Park Police Department.

Yolanda Gibson, 54, of St. Petersburg, was also taken to a hospital after complaining of an injury. Two passengers on the bus were not injured.
The crash happened about 3:35 p.m. on westbound Gandy Boulevard approaching Grand Avenue.
Hannum was driving a 2017 Honda Civic west in the curb lane on Gandy approaching Grand. He was directly behind a bus belonging to the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority that was slowing for traffic.
