TAMPA BAY - Tampa police believe weather may have been a factor on Friday when a man drove up a stairway attached to the bridge that connects Bayshore Boulevard to Davis Islands.

The driver, Michael Adams, was rounding a curve on northbound Bayshore around 7 a.m. when he lost control of his 2002 Ford F-150, according to a police statement.

The truck slid across wet grass and wound up on the stairs that lead to the Davis Islands Bridge near Tampa General Hospital.

Adams, 30,  was cited for careless driving.  He was not hurt.
