Police say a driver who pulled over to change a flat tire in Holtsville Tuesday afternoon was struck by another car as his family watched.
Sheriffs say Asif Ali, 30, of Queens, was changing a tire on the side of the LIE around 12:45 when he was hit. Ali was alone in the car, but officials say he was being followed by a car filled with family members that also pulled over when he did.
Responders were at the scene moments after the crash and performed CPR on Ali. He was then airlifted to Brookhaven Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Officials say Ali had been less than 3 feet from the right lane of traffic when he was hit.
Police say no charges will be filed against Erin Maynard, of Farmingville, who struck him with her vehicle.
