SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Officials say a woman was hit by a tractor and killed at a construction site on the campus of San Jose City College.

School officials say the woman was hit by the backhoe tractor at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday near the school's multidisciplinary arts building.

San Jose Evergreen Community College Chancellor Rita Cepeda expressed sympathies to the victim's family at a news conference, but officials would not say whether the woman was a student, visitor or employee of the school or construction company.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health — or Cal-OSHA — is handling the investigation.
