A Nassau County (N.Y.) Police Department officer died early Thursday after he was hit by an SUV while responding to a wild wreck on the Long Island Expressway, authorities said.

Joseph Olivieri, 43, was clipped by a Cadillac Escalade as he helped a motorist out of a vehicle involved in an accident near exit 35 in North Hills about 4:35 a.m., officials said.

The former NYPD officer, who joined the Nassau County Police Department 13 years ago, radioed for help. Emergency workers rushed him to North Shore Long Island Jewish Hospital.

But Olivieri, a Middle Island father of two grown children, could not be saved.

Rest in Peace officer, you did your job well now you may lay down your shield as your watch has ended. We shall take it from here as you go in peace.

You have steadied your hand so others would not trimble. You have brought calm to the night so others could rest. You have given the daylight your presence so others would not fear. Now, rest in peace for God rewards his servants who have cared for others.
