TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida garbage truck driver will be cited for fatally striking a pedestrian.

A Tampa police news release says 49-year-old Jarvis Mercer is expected to face a civil traffic citation involving the Tuesday morning death of 65-year-old Marcia Woodside Rivers. Mercer will not face criminal charges.

Investigators haven’t released details surrounding the crash. They say they’re still trying to determine what exactly led to the accident.
