Woman Killed in Hit-and-Run a Block From Where Brother Was Killed the Same Way
Pauline Aluska, 54, was killed in New York Monday, less than two years after her brother died the same way.
A New York woman has been killed in a hit-and-run just a block away from where her older brother died in the same manner.
Less than two years after her brother was killed, Pauline Aluska was found on Long Island's Montauk Highway in Lindenhurst this week.
John Aluska, 61, was killed in September 2015. His killer has never been found.
In Monday's incident, a passerby called 911, but it was too late for 54-year-old Pauline, who was actually the third member of her family to be fatally struck by a vehicle in recent years.
Just this past Mother's Day, their sister-in-law, 55-year-old Diane Aluska, the sister-in-law of the other two victims, was killed when a car struck her moments after she pushed her 16-year-old daughter out of the way.
The triple tragedy has the hearts of the Aluska family and friends heavy and one relative begging the driver responsible for Pauline's death to go to police.
"If you have a heart, have a soul, turn yourself in," Aluska's brother, Kenneth, told CBS New York.
Police say they've been poring over surveillance video and will soon release more information on the vehicle involved.
