Woman dies after being hit by bus in Tampa

TAMPA — A 60-year-old woman is dead after she was hit by a HART bus she'd just been riding, police said Thursday.

The accident happened at N Howard Avenue and W Main Street in West Tampa around 5:44 p.m. after the woman stepped off the bus at the designated stop, police said.

As she tried to cross Howard Avenue, the bus was turning right from Main onto Howard, and it struck the woman, Tampa police Lt. Donny Peters said.

Bus driver William Dudley Leduc, 64, of Riverview was cited for failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian. An attempt to reach HART spokesman Ed Crawford Thursday was unsuccessful.

The victim, who police did not name pending notification of next of kin, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
