TAMPA — A woman was struck by a car and killed Wednesday night while apparently crossing East Busch Boulevard, Tampa police said.
Police were called to the scene, near Busch and 18th Street, at about 9:40 p.m.
A man driving a Toyota Scion struck the woman as she was apparently walking north, police said, and he remained behind until officers arrived. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Busch Boulevard was closed to traffic for about three hours.
In a news release later Wednesday, Tampa police provided no immediate information about the driver or the victim.
