Garbage truck killed woman on Seattle street

SEATTLE — Police have not arrested the driver of a garbage truck that left the scene after running over a woman Thursday afternoon in Seattle.
Officers are still investigating and say the driver might not have been aware of hitting the woman on a street near Harborview Medical Center.
The Recology CleanScapes company issued a statement on its website Friday saying its truck was involved and it’s cooperating with investigators. The company offered condolences to the family of the woman. She has not been officially identified.
Witnesses said she was dragged nearly a half-block by the large lime green truck. Medics found her dead at the scene.
CleanScapes is under contract with the city of Seattle for waste management.
