TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The driver of a speeding car lost control while crossing the Courtney Campbell Causeway and struck a guardrail before crashing into a Tampa police cruiser.
    
Tampa police say the driver refused medical treatment early Monday. But the officer was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure.
    
The westbound lanes of the causeway re-opened around 4 a.m. after investigators cleared the crash scene.
    
There was no word on whether the driver has been charged.
