An East Massapequa man was struck by a car and killed as he rode his bicycle along a quiet side street less than a quarter-mile from his home Tuesday in Massapequa Park, Nassau County police said.
Lorenzo DiBenedetto, 66, was riding north on Oakdale Avenue, which runs just a handful of blocks, when he was struck by a 2011 Honda Pilot at the intersection of Linden Street at about 4:40 p.m., police said. DiBenedetto, who lives just a few blocks from the accident scene, suffered what police described as multiple trauma injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Honda remained at the scene and was not charged.
Police said the investigation is continuing.
