UW-Madison employee killed after being hit by delivery truck

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A 60-year-old UW-Madison employee was killed, after she was hit by a delivery truck on a court near the campus Memorial Union.  

Authorities said the truck was backing up when it hit the woman, who was walking behind it.  

WKOW-TV said the truck's backup alarm was sounding -- and police are not aware of any reason that the woman might not have heard it.

The victim died at a hospital. Her name was not immediately released.  

The truck is owned by UW-Madison, and the driver was reported to be a man in his 20's. Madison Police continue to investigate.
