Merrick Woman Killed in Motorcycle Crash

A 52-year-old Merrick woman was killed in a motorcyclist crash in Freeport, and a man who stopped to help her was struck by a vehicle that also hit the victim late Sunday night.

Nassau County police said the woman, whose identity was not immediately available, was riding a Harley Davidson eastbound on Mill Road when she was involved in a collision with the median near Merrick Road shortly after 11 p.m.

The victim was ejected from the motorcycle and landed in the westbound lanes of Merrick Road, where a passing driver stopped, exited his vehicle and tried to help her, when he was struck by a passing female driver whose vehicle also hit the motorcyclist, police said.

The motorcyclist and the motorist were taken to a local hospital, where the motorcyclist was pronounced dead and the motorist was treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Homicide Squad detectives impounded the vehicles for safety checks. They are continuing the investigation and have deemed the crash to be accidental.
