A 60-year-old East Rockaway woman was struck and killed by a car while crossing the street in her hometown Wednesday, Nassau County police said.

The victim, Carmel Kennedy, was attempting to cross Atlantic Avenue at the intersection of Ocean Avenue just after 8 p.m. when she was struck by a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old woman, police said.

Kennedy suffered multiple trauma injuries, and was transported to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Investigators performed a brake and safety check of the vehicle at the scene, but no criminality is suspected, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, police said.
