A 43-year-old Seaford woman died after she crashed her car on the Wantagh State Parkway in Wantagh on Thursday morning.

New York State police said Amy Giunta was driving her Cadillac DTS northbound “at a high rate of speed” when she crashed into the woods south of the Southern State Parkway shortly before 9 a.m.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses told investigators that the victim was speeding before crossing the lanes of the roadway, driving onto the shoulder and hitting a tree.

Northbound lanes of Wantagh parkway were closed at Sunrise Highway for two hours while investigators were on the scene.
