Clearwater Police investigating serious injury crash on the Courtney Campbell Causeway

Investigators from the Clearwater Police Department are investigating a crash that occurred in the eastbound lanes of the Courtney Campbell Causeway at approximately 11:46 p.m. on Saturday, May 2, 2020.

Police say that a 2018 Nissan Sentra traveling westbound on the causeway went out of control and struck the guardrail on the north side of the road. The driver then over-corrected and veered into the eastbound lanes through a median break, striking a 2011 Ford F-150 nearly head-on.

The eastbound lanes of the Causeway were closed for several hours during the on-scene investigation.
