Child Killed Delivering Cookies To Mailman


HARDINSBURG, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky state police say an 11-year-old
Breckinridge County girl who was bringing cookies to her mail
carrier was hit by a truck and killed.
Police say Lydia Hilty was struck Tuesday afternoon by a 1999
Chevy Silverado driven by 34-year-old Bobby D. Leslie of Falls of
Rough.
State police trooper Steve Pavey, spokesman for post 4, says the
girl accidentally stepped out into the roadway from behind the mail
truck when she was hit.
Pavey says the incident remains under investigation, but it
appears to be a tragic accident. He adds it does not appear it was
weather-related.
