The accident happened shortly before 9:30 a.m.

Based on preliminary information, it appears the woman was crossing Bay to Bay and jogged into oncoming traffic, thinking the vehicles had a red light.

Tampa Police say the woman's injuries appear to be non-life threatening, and that she suffered face abrasions and a broken leg.

She was transported to Tampa General Hospital.

Police say due to the fact there was a green light at the time, the driver of the car will not be cited.
