Just before 7pm Suffolk Police and Setauket EMS were called to the intersection of Nicolls Rd. and Health Sciences Dr., near Stony Brook University Hospital after a pedestrian was struck by a van. 

It appears the pedestrian was crossing Nicolls Rd. when the victim was struck by the van that was heading south.  The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Police closed down the busy roadway in both directions and SCPD 6th squad detectives and crime scene bureau were called to the scene for an accident investigation. 

Unknown if any criminality at this time but the driver did remain at the scene.
