ST. PETERSBURG — Florida Highway Patrol troopers on Sunday released the identity of the woman struck twice and killed last week while crossing 66th Street N.
Authorities said the woman — Ruby Jean Butler, 64, of Tulsa, Okla. — was pushing a shopping cart across the road about 10:30 p.m. June 1 at the intersection of 42nd Avenue N. She was struck by a Honda Civic driven by Caleb J. Fitzgerald, 18, of Gulfport.
The force of the impact threw Butler into the center lane, where she was struck by a Ford F-150 pickup driven by Vicki S. Miller, 51, of Clearwater.
Butler died at the scene.
Officials said the crash remains under investigation.
