INDIAN ROCKS BEACH (FOX 13) - Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach was closed for several hours while deputies investigated a fatal crash involving a wrong-way driver.
Just before 2:00 p.m., a PSTA trolley was stopped in a designated bus stop just where Michael Joe Richardson was placing his bicycle on the bike rack. A car, driven by 58-year-old David Schwab, crossed the southbound lane and struck the bus head on.
Richardson sustained life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to Bayfront Medical Center. He later died from his injuries. No one else on the bus was injured.
Investigators say that impairment appears to be a factor in the crash. Criminal charges are pending for Schwab.
