Borden didn't stop and drove into the intersection, crashing into the man's vehicle and causing both of them to end up north of South Boulevard, troopers said.
Borden was taken to Heart of Florida Hospital, where she later died from her injuries, the FHP said. The man driving the Avenger was being treated for serious injuries, troopers said.
