An 81-year-old Lebanon man who was riding a scooter died Monday afternoon when he was struck by a car making a turn on Route 202 in Alfred, state police said.

Russell Faxon was driving the scooter behind a large box truck when an oncoming car turning left struck Faxon.

The driver of the car, 65-year-old Laura Melisi, of Acton, was attempting to make a left turn into an ice cream stand.

She turned after the truck passed, but did not see Faxon on the scooter. Faxon was not wearing a helmet.

Melisi and a passenger in the car were not injured. Faxon died at the scene.
