Woman dies in hit and run in Frankford

A woman was hit by a red dump truck Thursday morning at Cheltenham and Bustleton and died. 

A 58-year-old woman was fatally struck by the operator of an industrial truck that drove off yesterday morning in Frankford, and authorities said the driver might not have known he’d hit someone.

“With a truck that large, it’s possible the driver did not know,” said Sgt. Albert Gramlich of the Accident Investigation District.

Witnesses told police an industrial truck, possibly with a red cab and blue trash receptacle on the back, struck the woman, who was standing on the southwest corner of Bustleton and Cheltenham Avenues, about 9:30 a.m., Gramlich said.
