Lindenhurst — New York authorities said a Long Island woman who was struck and killed in a hit-and-run accident is the third member of her family to die in a pedestrian accident in the past two years.

Police say officers responding to a 911 call on Monday found 54-year-old Pauline Aluska, of Lindenhurst, on Montauk Highway in the village. She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police told Newsday she was struck a block from where her brother, 61-year-old John Aluska, was killed in September 2015 in a hit-and-run accident. Drivers in those accidents haven't been found.

This past Mother's Day, May 14, the siblings' sister-in-law was killed in Lindenhurst when a car struck her moments after she pushed her 16-year-old daughter out of the way.
