BAYSIDE — A Rochdale man was stuck and killed on the Clearview Expressway in Bayside Sunday after he got out of a car on the shoulder of the highway, police said.

Farook Husseil, 57, was in a car traveling southbound on the expressway, police said, when the driver stopped on the righthand side of the road near the 35th Avenue overpass and Hussel, a passenger, got out.

A 2010 Freightliner box truck that was also traveling southbound struck Husseil around noon, police said.

Officers and EMS personnel responded to the scene, where both drivers remained, according to the NYPD.

Husseil was taken to Flushing Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

The driver was not charged and police did not suspect any criminality, according to the NYPD.
