Lindenhurst Mom Fatally Hit by Car on Mother's Day

Jenna and Riolo were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the same hospital, police said.

Investigators say the Toyota was backing out of a diagonal parking spot when it backed onto the sidewalk, struck the mother and daughter, and then crashed into the Lindenhurst Fire House.

Diana Aluska, 55, and her 16-year-old daughter were hit on South Wellwood Avenue around 9:10 a.m., police said.

Jenna underwent surgery for her injuries and now has a long recovery ahead of her. Both she and her mother were rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, police said. We are keeping her daughter, Jenna and her family in our thoughts and prayers. Suffolk County police Detective Sgt. James Murphy said the senior citizen who was leaving the parking lot at a local bakery thought she had put her auto into drive mode but had place it in reverse instead.

The auto barreled backward, hitting 53-year-old Diane Aluska as she pushed her daughter out of the way, saving Jenna's life.

A mother and daughter who had just left church and picked up treats at a bakery on Mother's Day were struck by a vehicle that jumped the curb and hit them on the sidewalk, police said.

Mother and daughter were struck Sunday by a Toyota Corolla that 80-year-old driver Ann Riolo had accidentally put in reverse as she was leaving a bakery in Lindenhurst.

Murphy said he does not anticipate charges for Riolo. "We are taking the auto in to investigate, but it appears to be non criminal". They were able to roll the auto forward, but Diane had been mortally struck.

Jenna Aluska was saved by a mother's love on Mother's Day. "You wouldn't want it to happen any time, but on Mother's Day, it's even more tragic". Moving her daughter out of harm's way, Diane Aluska, 56, was left pinned against a wall, fatally injured.
