I was browsing the New York Daily News website & noticed I miss out on a story regarding an unfortunate accident in Queens. As expected when one hears or reads accident in Queens, they probably think it happened on Queens Blvd. If so, your instincts were spot on as a 65 year old elderly woman was hit by a Q65 in Forest Hills. Wil Cruz of the New York Daily News had more in this brief report:
A city bus struck an elderly woman on Thursday on a busy stretch in Queens, officials said.
The 65-year-old woman, who was not identified, was hit by a Q65 in Forest Hills about 11:45 a.m. She hurt her left arm but was expected to survive.
“She was responsive,” said an NYC Transit spokeswoman.
The woman was stable at Elmhurst Hospital Center. No one on the bus was injured.
The bus struck the woman at the intersection of 108th St. and Queens Blvd., fire and transit officials said.
It appeared to be an accident.
Still, the driver will undergo drug and alcohol testing.
That is routine after accidents, the spokeswoman said.
Thankfully the woman was in stable condition & no injuries occurred to anyone on the bus. Something needs to be done about increasing the safety for civilians on Queens Blvd.
