A 37-year-old man died Sunday when the car he was driving collided with a Charlotte Area Transit bus on N. Tryon Street.
Authorities identified the victim as James Allen Sumpter.
The crash was reported at 11:15 p.m. in the 4700 block. None of the 14 passengers on the bus reported serious injury.
According to CMPD, the bus had pulled away from a stop when it was struck from behind by a 2007 Nissan Sentra driven by Sumpter, who died at the scene. CMPD investigators suspect Sumpter may have been under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
