BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts Institute of Technology visiting scientist from Japan has been killed while riding her bicycle in Boston.

Police say a bicyclist was struck at Beacon Street and Charlesgate West at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.

The cyclist, identified by MIT as 36-year-old Kanako Miura, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police describe her death as a hit-and-run and are looking for a garbage truck that may have been involved.

There was no word on arrests as of Monday.

MIT said in a statement that Miura had been at the university since the fall and worked at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

MIT President L. Rafael Reif expressed condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.
