HONOLULU (AP) - A garbage truck backing out of a Honolulu cul-de-sac struck and killed an 83-year-old woman near her home.

Police Lt. Robert Towne says the woman was run over Friday morning and she died later at a hospital.

Police said they believe that the woman, a retired registered nurse, was crossing at a street corner at the time of the crash.

Honolulu environmental services department spokesman Markus Owens told the Star-Advertiser that it is common for garbage trucks to back out of short, dead-end streets because those areas are too narrow for trucks to go in and turn around.
