    WESTFIELD, Mass. A woman walking down Sycamore Street in Westfield was struck and killed by a ten-wheel dump truck loaded with macadam for a paving operation.

    Police identified the victim as Susan Woodbury. Investigators said she was struck yesterday afternoon when the truck backed up.

    A neighborhood resident said the truck driver -- also a woman -- was distraught after the 1:30 p-m accident.

    Witnesses said the truck's warning beeper was sounding as it backed up, but the victim apparently was unaware the vehicle was moving toward her.
