A 77-year-old woman driving an Audi died Friday in East Hills after her car was hit by an eastbound Mack truck hauling a semitrailer on the Long Island Expressway's south service road, Nassau police said on Saturday.

Carol Samide, of East Hills, who was driving a 2017 Audi Q7 north on Roslyn Road about 2:29 p.m. Friday, suffered multiple trauma injuries. She was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital, police said.
