25-Year-Old Man Struck, Killed By M60 Bus In Harlem

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A 25-year-old man was struck and killed by a city bus in Harlem on Thursday just hours after another MTA vehicle fatally struck a woman in Queens.

Police said Willie Gonzalez was walking down Saint Nicholas Avenue when he was hit by an M60 bus at the intersection of West 125th Street around 1:20 a.m.

Gonzalez was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s Hospital.

Police said the driver remained at the scene and no criminality was suspected.

On Wednesday, 22-year-old Meilan Jin died after being struck by an out-of-service Q44 bus at Northern Boulevard and Union Street in Flushing.

The driver had left the scene, apparently unaware that she had hit anyone, police said.

No charges were filed.

    One more reason why ALL public transportation should be BANNED immediately. If you want to go anywhere, then be a REAL American and DRIVE YOUR CAR.

    How are the buses? This and the one yesterday in Queens.

    The 25 year old was probably at fault for not looking both directions before crossing.

    The lights and the walking sign’s are there, but there will be careless drivers always. They will be distracted and make a careless turn, and the next thing you know it they strike someone.

  6. smartguy says:

    I noticed a lot of people never look both directions, and looking behind them. Before I cross any road I always make sure to look everywhere before crossing. There are plenty of times that I see people just walking without looking in every direction before crossing.
