The 22-year-old man, identified by school officials as Zander Urban, was struck at Lombard and Pierce streets at about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

Urban was taken to a hospital and put on life support, and died shortly after noon Thursday, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

The driver of the car stopped at the scene, and told police he did not see Urban before the collision. The crash remains under investigation, Dangerfield said.

Urban had just graduated from USF last week with a bachelor of arts degree in international studies, university spokeswoman Anne-Marie Devine said.

He worked in the Media Production Department at the university, and was ready to start an internship after graduation. He had also worked as an intern at the state Capitol last summer and played in a band, Devine said.

“Zander touched the lives of many people here at USF and his loss is being felt by many members of our community,” she said.
