A 75-year-old Port Washington woman died Monday after she was struck by a box truck while crossing the street, Nassau County police said.

The victim was identified as Sandra Samuels. Police said she was walking west to east inside a marked crosswalk on Waterview Drive in Port Washington around 8:15 a.m. when she was struck by a 2015 International box truck being operated by a 30-year-old male driver.

Samuels, according to police, suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at North Shore long Island Jewish Hospital in Manhasset four hours later.

Police performed a break and safety test on the truck at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing, but police noted that there appears to be no criminality at this time.
