Indiana Woman Killed Crossing The Howard Frankland Bridge

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say an Indiana woman was struck by a car and killed as she walked across a Tampa Bay bridge.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, Lucindi Sueann Lane of Kendallville, Ind., was walking south early Saturday along the shoulder of the Howard Frankland Bridge. She was struck by a car driven by an 18-year-old Florida woman.

FHP officials say Lane, 25, died at the scene. Neither the driver nor three other teenagers in her car were injured.
