CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a woman struck by a boom truck while crossing a street in the heart of Harvard Square has died.

Cambridge police say the woman in her 60s was struck just before 7 a.m. Tuesday.

The woman was transported to an area hospital with severe injuries where she was later pronounced dead.

The preliminary investigation suggests that the woman was not in a crosswalk when she was struck. The truck driver stayed at the scene.

No names were released and the no charges were filed. The case remains under investigation.
