LAKE GROVE, N.Y. (AP) - Police say a 77-year-old woman has died after she suffered a medical emergency and crashed her car into a mall on Long Island.

It happened at about 2 p.m. Friday at the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove.

Suffolk County police say Margherita Giaquinto was driving a 2015 Mercedes-Benz in the parking lot when she apparently suffered a medical emergency.

They say she struck a pole and then hit the building.

Giaquinto was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
