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.
