LINDENHURST, N.Y. (AP) — Police on Long Island say a mother was struck and killed by a car after pushing her 16-year-old daughter out of the way of the oncoming vehicle.
Suffolk County police say 55-year-old Diane Aluska, of Lindenhurst, New York, was on the sidewalk with her daughter around 9 a.m. Sunday when a driver backing out of a parking spot reversed onto the walkway. The car hit the pedestrians and continued into the Lindenhurst Fire Department.
Aluska was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead. Her daughter was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, as was the driver of the car. Authorities identified her as Ann Riolo, 80, of Lindenhurst.
