MIAMI (CBSMiami) — A college student has died after being struck by a car while crossing the street.
Alexis Dale, 18, was at the intersection of S.W. 8th Street at 109th Avenue Sunday morning, near the Florida International University campus, when she was hit.
Dale started school there in June and moved to South Florida from San Diego, CA.

FIU also said her family has been notified.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating.
