A 50-year-old man was fatally struck by a car in his hometown of Long Beach early Friday morning.

Nassau County police said Sean McCarthy was crossing Park Avenue when he was hit by a westbound Chevrolet Corvette at the corner of Maple Boulevard shortly before 6 a.m.

The victim, who suffered serious head injuries, was taken to South Nassau Communities Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Homicide Squad detectives impounded the car for a brake safety test but found no criminality.

McCarthy was a longtime Long Beach school employee who was walking to work at the time, the Long Beach Herald reported.
