An 80-year-old woman was struck and killed as she was crossing an East Elmhurst street Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The victim, Sevasti Skarlatos, was walking northbound across Astoria Boulevard at 80th Street about 2:50 p.m. when a 28-year-old woman driving a Nissan Altima hit her, authorities said.

Skarlatos, who lived less than 10 blocks from where she was struck, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
