A woman is killed after getting hit by a semi-truck in Central El Paso. It happened at about 12:45 p.m. at Trowbridge and Clark Street. Police say the elderly woman died instantly. Neighbors say there's always a lot of semi-truck traffic, but that this crash was a real eye opener.

"We live just right here, so we just cross to the store. I guess we'll be more aware now," said neighbor Christopher Chacon.

This is the 34th traffic death this year in El Paso.

Does anyone at channel 9 actually speak Englisn? This headline could be on "TheTonightShow" as one of those stupid newspaper bloopers. I knew before I read it that the story would actually be that the woman was killed BY the semi, but of course, had to check to make sure that maybe she had been hit and THEN shot or perhaps bludgeoned by a passer-by.

It would be nice if there was one educated grown-up somewhere in that news department who could attempt to catch these ridiculous errors.
