An Arlington woman died after being struck by a dump truck Monday near Nottingham Elementary School in Arlington, according to news reports.
The woman had apparently just loaded a young child into a car seat when she was hit by the truck, according to The Washington Post. She was identified as Jennifer Lawson, 39, a mother of three from Arlington.
The driver of the privately owned truck stayed at the scene of the crash and was cooperating with investigators, the paper reported.
Lt. Michael Watson, an Arlington County police spokesman, told the Post police had not yet assigned blame or charged anyone in connection with the incident.
“From an accident point of view, it was a very simple accident, but it gets complicated when you start trying to figure out speeds and where they were on the roadway,” Watson said.
