LINDENHURST, NY — A mother was killed and her daughter was injured when the two were struck by a car in Lindenhurst on Sunday morning, Suffolk County Police said.
Diana Aluska, 55, and her 16-year-old daughter were hit on South Wellwood Avenue around 9:10 a.m., police said. The 2005 Toyota Corolla slammed into a Lindenhurst Fire Department building after hitting the pedestrians.
Both women were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, a Nassau County Police Department spokesperson said. Aluska did not survive. Her daughter was treated for her injuries and is not likely to die.
The driver of the Corolla, 80-year-old Ann Riolo, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Riolo was backing out of a diagonal parking spot when she drove onto the sidewalk, in reverse, and then hit the women.
The Corolla was impounded for a safety check.
