TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - An elderly man driving southbound in a northbound highway lane of Interstate 75 crashed into another car, killing himself and the other driver in Hamilton County. The accident just before midnight Friday created a five car pileup involving a Greyhound bus on route to Atlanta from Tampa. Some 13 passengers were treated for minor injuries.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say 91-year-old Ernest Lee Holmes of High Springs, Fla. was driving a 1993 Buick Century when he crashed into 55-year-old Peter J. Linek, of Ormond Beach. Linek was driving his Ford Explore northbound in the correct direction. Both men died.

Two other vehicles were snared in the wreck besides the bus. One carried five children, but there were no other injuries.

Greyhound sent a replacement bus to take the passengers to Atlanta.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
