Oregon woman, 87, steps into traffic, is killed

An 87-year-old Oregon woman died when she stepped in front of traffic on Starr Avenue last night while heading to a band concert at a local school, police said.

Ruth Mason, 87, of Cromwell Street was walking ahead of her granddaughter-in-law toward Fassett Middle School when she stepped out into the path of a sport utility truck driven by Andrea Shrewsbury, 32, of Oregon, police Lt. Hank Everitt said. Mrs. Mason died at the scene.

No charges were anticipated, but the accident remains under investigation.
