TAMPA — A 56-year-old pedestrian who was critically injured Wednesday has died, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Oliver, who was crossing the northbound lanes of Florida Avenue outside of a crosswalk, apparently didn't see Grubbs' car and was struck.

Grubbs was uninjured. She faces a charge of crossing the painted area of the street.
