As thousands of bead-hungry people lined Bayshore Blvd. waiting for the Gasparilla parade, they had to wait a little longer, but they didn’t know why. It was a crash.

While traveling from the invasion at the Tampa Convention Center to the beginning of the parade route, three buses full of pirates (and a former Tampa Bay Lightning captain) were in a collision on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway.

Vincent Lecavalier and two other men were taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital with minor injuries.

The parade was delayed about 30 minutes.
