Police: Pedestrian hit by car at Mobil gas station dies

A pedestrian struck by a car in a gas station parking lot Sunday morning in East Massapequa has died, Nassau County police said Tuesday.

Robert Stevenson, 65, of Massapequa, died at a hospital Monday at 8:04 p.m., police said.

Stevenson had just left the Bolla Market at a Mobil gas station on Merrick Road when he was struck by a 2009 Dodge Charger driven by a 47-year-old man at about 7:15 a.m., police said.

Police said the driver, whose identity was not released, had made a left-hand turn into the station parking lot then disobeyed two “Do Not Enter” signs — before striking and critically injuring Stevenson, who was walking to his car.

Stevenson was airlifted to the hospital where he died. Police said homicide squad detectives are investigating.
