UPDATED: Mass. woman dies after being struck by truck early Sunday in Salem

SALEM — A Massachusetts woman was killed after she was hit by a pickup truck in Salem early Sunday.


Police said the woman, identified as Edith Hamilton, 44, of Haverhill, Mass., was walking on Main Street, just west of the intersection with Hampstead Road when she was hit by a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup truck.


Police said the driver of the truck, a 19-year-old man, stopped and was providing medical assistance to the woman while waiting for the arrival of an ambulance.


Police said Hamilton was taken first to Lawrence (Mass.) General Hospital and then to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston where she died of serious internal injuries.


Police said the accident is under investigation, but preliminary evidence did not suggest that speed, alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. Investigators have asked that anyone who may have driven through the area to call police at 603-893-1911.


The scene of the accident is located at a commercial intersection about 500 feet from the Methuen, Mass. city line.
