A 91-year-old woman, with a walker, was killed Friday night when she was struck by an SUV while trying to cross N Dale Mabry Highway in Northdale.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Isabel Triana, of Tampa, was in an unmarked crosswalk around 8:30 a.m. when she attempted to cross four southbound lanes at Mapledale Drive.

Ricky Dean Sherrin, 58, of Lutz, had a green light when he entered the intersection and struck Triana while driving a 2002 Jeep Liberty southbound on Dale Mabry, troopers said.

Triana was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she died from her injuries, troopers said.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, troopers said, and no charges are pending.
