Kalamazoo woman on a moped killed by dump truck

by

KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP A 52-year-old Kalamazoo woman who was riding a moped is dead after she was struck by a dump truck at 1:00 this afternoon.

They aren’t releasing the name of the victim until relatives have been notified.

Kalamazoo Township Chief Tim Bourgeois says they are still sorting out exactly what happened, but he says both were traveling down Nichols Road headed southbound when the 60-year-old truck driver tried to pull onto Canterbury and struck the moped.

Accident reconstructionists from Kalamazoo Public Safety, the Sheriff’s Dept. and State Police are all assisting the township in sorting out the facts.

An autopsy on the victim is planned.
