    A woman is dead after she was hit by a snowplow on Monday morning.

    The accident occurred around 9:45 a.m. at the Tara Gardens condominium complex in Weymouth, Massachusetts. The woman was later identified as 57-year-old Cynthia Levine, according to the Norfolk district attorney's office.

    Levine was pronounced dead at the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Boston will perform an autopsy.

    Weymouth Police and a member of the motor vehicle homicide unit are on scene.
