An 89-year-old woman was killed when the car she was a passenger in crashed into a moving truck in her hometown of Shirley on Thursday afternoon.

Suffolk County police said Robert Macioce, 65, of Shirley, was driving his mother, Johanna Macioce, in a Toyota sedan westbound on Dawn Drive when he collided with a southbound Freightliner truck at the corner of William Floyd Parkway at 1:05 p.m.

Robert and Johanna were taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue, where Johanna died of her injuries. Robert suffered a leg injury. The other driver and his three passengers were not injured.

The car and truck, which is owned by Ronkonkoma-based O’Flaherty Moving & Storage Incorporated, were impounded for safety checks.

Seventh Squad detectives are continuing the investigating investigation and ask anyone with information on this crash to call them at 631-852-8752.
