Two pedestrians were killed in separate accidents on Long Island early Sunday, police said.

One happened about 4:45 a.m. after Jonathan Nieto-Carrillo, 27, of Hampton Bays, got out of a 2004 Nissan that was pulled over on the shoulder of the eastbound Long Island Expressway near Exit 58 in Islandia. Nieto-Carillo, who was a passenger in the Nissan, was struck by a 2008 Mazda being driven by Justin Wishnevsky, 39, of Ridge, Suffolk County police said.

Nieto-Carrillo was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Wishnevsky was not injured.

Wishnevsky’s vehicle was impounded for a safety check and the investigation was continuing, police said.

Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini said individuals had “no business” getting out of cars on the highway.

Less than four hours earlier, an unidentified 52-year-old woman walking across Sunrise Highway in Bellmore was killed when she was struck by a vehicle traveling east, according to Nassau County police.

According to homicide detectives, the accident happened about 1 a.m. and the victim was transported to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, where she was pronounced dead.

Other details were not released, but police said there was no criminality involved.
