The director of the Sydney Dance Company (as of Oct. 2), Tanya Liedtke, was killed on Friday when she was hit by a truck. She was just 29:

VERY sad news - she has just be named recently to take over the company, so this leaves a big gap for one of the most innovative and talent filled contemporary companies around today. My heart goes out to the company and Ms. Liedtke's partner

It sounds like she tried to dart across the street against the light - as all of us sometimes do - and may not have not look carefully enough to have seen the truck. I've had a couple of close calls here in Edinburgh and know that all it takes is one moment's lapse of attention.

This article indicates that Ms. Liedtke was out walking after midnight, so the truck driver probably didn't see her in the dark.

How tragic! And what a freak accident. I wish the company and her loved ones condolences and thoughts of hope.
