The woman began crossing the street when a tractor-trailer made a right turn and hit her, according to police.

LONGMONT, Colo. — A semi tractor-trailer struck and killed a 65-year-old woman from Longmont about noon on Tuesday, according to police.

The woman was trying to cross the street going east from the southwest corner of the intersection of South Hover Street and Clover Basin, said Longmont Police Department (LPD)

As the woman began to cross the street, the semi made a right turn and hit her, running her over, said LPD in a news release.

Fire crews responded to the intersection and transported the woman to a local hospital where she died later from her injuries, LPD said.

Police said their initial investigation determined a 32-year-old from Dacono was driving the semi, tractor-trailer combination, and was traveling east at the Longmont intersection.

Police were still investigating the collision.
