Honolulu garbage truck fatally strikes woman

HONOLULU (AP) - A 70-year-old Honolulu woman has died after being run over by a city garbage truck in Kalihi.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says Barbara Kato was the third person fatally injured in Oahu by a garbage truck in just over a year.

One of the two other incidents involved a city garbage truck and the other one involved a privately owned vehicle.

Kato was struck Thursday morning by a truck driven by a 57-year-old woman. She was taken to Queen's Medical Center, where she died.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell says the city will cooperate in the investigation.
