An 81-year-old woman died after being ejected from her car during a crash involving another vehicle and a tractor trailer at a busy Hicksville intersection, Nassau County police said Saturday.

The accident happened about 4:20 p.m. Friday on North Broadway near Newbridge Road, where routes 106 and 107 split, police said.

The woman, who wasn't immediately identified, was driving her 2001 Toyota east on Princess Street when the car sped up and crossed into the southbound lanes of North Broadway.
