Ellen Stegman, 67, is bicyclist struck and killed by truck, cops say

Authorities have identified a woman struck and killed Saturday afternoon by a box truck in Rockville Centre as Ellen Stegman, 67.

Stegman, of Rockville Centre, was riding her bicycle northbound on South Park Avenue about 2:40 p.m. when she fell off, Nassau police said.

A 2003 Ford box truck also heading north on South Park Avenue then struck Stegman, police said. The driver of the truck, who was not charged, stopped and called 911.

Stegman was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

She was the director of mathematics and business for Levittown Public Schools, according to the district.

“Dr. Stegman was a valued member of our administrative team,” Levittown Superintendent Tonie McDonald said in a statement. “More than that, she was a trusted and kind friend who was committed to the furtherance of math education for our Levittown children. We deeply mourn her sudden and tragic passing.”
