    A driver appeared in court on homicide charges months after an 82-year-old mother of 14 was hit and killed by a dump truck.

    Patricia Lemay was killed in a July 14 crash that police described at the time as a "tragic accident."

    After an investigation, though, authorities determined he driver, 60-year-old Phillip Friedman of Paxton, should have seen Lemay.

    The victim was taking a walk on the side of the road when a truck working on a paving project struck the woman. She was knocked down and pinned underneath the vehicle.
