A Floral Park woman was killed in a crash yesterday after she was ejected from the rear of a motorcycle that collided with a small SUV that was pulling into a driveway in Northport, Suffolk police said.
Police say Mary Santry-Rosenvinge was driving her 2015 Toyota RAV4 eastbound on Fort Salonga Road at about 5:35 p.m. and, as she attempted to make a left hand turn into her driveway, west of Sandy Hollow Road, her vehicle struck a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by James Losito, who was traveling westbound on Fort Salonga Road.
Losito’s girlfriend, Martha Garcia, was riding on the back of the motorcycle and was ejected when the accident occurred.
Police say speed did not appear to be a contributing factor.
Garcia, 57, of Floral Park, was transported to Huntington Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Losito, 53, of Floral Park, and Santry-Rosenvinge, 66, were transported to Huntington Hospital, where they are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The accident shut down Fort Salonga Road for hours Sunday night.
The vehicles were impounded for safety checks and the investigation is continuing. Detectives are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact the Second Squad at 631-854-8252.
