A commercial vehicle was impounded after a pedestrian was killed Thursday morning in a suspected hit-and-run in Lake Success, Nassau County police said.

Police said in a Friday news release that the victim, a 74-year-old woman, was found on the sidewalk of Lakeville Road near Farm Lane at 10:45 a.m. Thursday. She "appeared to be struck by a vehicle and was in cardiac arrest," the release said.

She was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead at 11:18 a.m.
