Breaking: Fatal Bus Collision Kills 3 in Queens

BREAKING NEWS – A bus collision in Queens has left 3 dead and over a dozen injured. The accident took place early Monday morning at the busy intersection of Northern Blvd. and Main Street in the Flushing neighborhood around 6:15 a.m.

A Metropolitan Transit Authority bus and a charter bus collided, causing at least one of the buses to hit a nearby building. One of the three who have been pronounced dead was a pedestrian, discovered trapped underneath one of the buses. A second one was a passenger on the MTA bus. The third dead was the driver of the charter bus, local authorities said at a news conference at the crash site.

The FDNY says at this point, at least 16 people were injured, and a small fire burst out when one of the buses hit the nearby building after the initial collision.

The Q20 city bus was making a right turn when it was struck by the charter Dahlia Travel and Tours bus, according to Kevin Ortiz, a spokesman for the MTA. He said that at least 15 people were injured on the city bus. The collision between the two buses pushed the charter into a building wall, and as a result, a fire erupted in a Kennedy Fried Chicken on the corner of Northern Blvd. and Main St., the accident site.
