Police on Long Island say a 54-year-old woman was killed when she lost control of her vehicle on an icy patch of road.

Suffolk County Police say the accident happened Sunday morning on Sunrise Highway in West Babylon just after another driver had lost control of his pickup on an ice patch and struck a guardrail.

Police say the woman, Susan Galligan, of Riverhead, spun out on the same icy stretch and struck the stalled pickup.

Galligan was pronounced dead at the scene. The pickup driver and two of his passengers were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
