Pedestrian killed by bus near USF

TAMPA — A Hillsborough County Regional Transit Authority bus struck and killed a pedestrian near the University of South Florida early Saturday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reported.

At 6:19 a.m., the out-of-service bus with no passengers hit Robert L. Lewis, 66, on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard across from the James A. Haley VA Medical Center, sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon said. Lewis was crossing Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and apparently didn't see the bus coming, McKinnon said.

The bus driver, 61-year-old Carl M. Darby, was not at fault and no charges are pending, McKinnon said.
