The heartbreaking moment dad told daughter that mom died saving her

Police say a woman is dead and another

Diane Aluska, a mother of three, saw a vehicle reversing fast towards them and managed to get her 16-year-old daughter Jenna out of the way.

The driver of the Toyota, identified as 80-year-old Ann Riolo, also of Lindenhurst, was hospitalized with injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Instead, "she left it in reverse, hit the gas, started speeding backwards, lost control and jumped the sidewalk", said Officer James Murphy.

Local authorities say that "without a doubt" Diane saved her daughter's life.

Aluska and her daughter had just moments earlier left a Mother's Day mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Roman Catholic Church and were walking down South Wellwood Avenue at 9:15 a.m., when the crash took place.

Diane was transferred to a nearby hospital, along with her daughter as well as the elderly driver, where she died shortly after.

A Long Island mother has passed away after saving her 16-year-old daughter.

Diane was a mother of three; Jenna was her youngest. When she hit the gas, it lurched backwards, almost missed some parked cars and headed directly towards the women walking. Diane Aluska was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Jenna Aluska and Riolo were taken to the same hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The daughter was hurt but is expected to be OK, police told NBC 4 NY. I knew she wasn't going to... survive.

'It appears to be non-criminal, just a terrible accident, ' Sergeant Murphy said.

"This appears to be non-criminal, a tragic accident", Mr Murphy said.

This is a frightful tragedy on any day, but for it to happen on Mother's Day strikes a particularly emotional chord.
