Pedestrian Fatality: Woman Hit by Car and SUV on Freeport Road

Car accident in Nassau County

In a tragic incident on Saturday evening in Freeport, Long Island, a 77-year-old woman was struck fatally in a two-vehicle accident while crossing the road. The accident occurred on Merrick Road near South Main Street just before 8:30 p.m., causing a dramatic scene on the busy thoroughfare.

The initial collision happened when an eastbound 2018 Honda Accord, driven by a 26-year-old man, struck the woman. The incident prompted immediate action as the driver halted his vehicle upon the impact, cooperating with authorities upon their arrival.

Moments later, as the situation unfolded, a second vehicle, a 2020 Dodge Durango operated by a 39-year-old woman, traveling southbound on Main Street, collided with the pedestrian. Similarly, the Durango driver stopped to assist and remained at the scene for questioning by the police.

The victim, whose identity is withheld pending notification of kin, suffered critical injuries from the consecutive impacts. Emergency responders swiftly transported her to a local hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

Both drivers involved in the unfortunate incident have been questioned by Nassau County Police as the investigation continues. No charges have been filed at this time, and the authorities are meticulously gathering evidence to establish the events that led to the fatal incident.
