Pedestrian on cell phone crushed by truck
by UPI

TORONTO -- Toronto police say a woman who walked into the side of a truck and was then run over was likely distracted by talking on her cell phone.

The unidentified 28-year-old woman died Wednesday night on busy Front Street outside the Rogers Center stadium, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

Police Sgt. Steve Burrows said the woman walked into the side of a turning delivery truck. She fell and was run over by the truck's rear wheels and declared dead at the scene, he said.

"There's no way to say definitively yes or no, but it certainly didn't help that she was talking on the phone while trying to cross a relatively busy street," Burrows said. "These are things we have been warning pedestrians about -- you certainly cut off some of your sensory abilities when you're doing something like that."

By Thursday, no charges had been filed against the driver, the report said.
