DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say an 83-year-old woman was killed when her car slammed into the back of a truck stopped at a toll plaza on Delaware Route 1 in Dover.

It happened shortly before noon Wednesday. Troopers say Shirley J. Taylor of Wilmington was traveling southbound approaching the plaza. Police say she failed to stop for a 10-wheel rollback truck that was waiting behind another vehicle paying the toll.

Officers say Taylor's car hit the rear of the truck and rode underneath it.
