A female pedestrian died in the east part of Wichita, near Douglas & Webb.

Early Wednesday afternoon, a trash truck was not able to proceed forward because of cars on Laurel Drive, so the driver had to put the truck in reverse.

The victim was walking south-bound on Laurel; the Waste Management truck was backing up on the street when it hit her. She was taken to the hospital, but died from her injuries.

The victim is identified as 79-year-old Carol Denning.
