Mother Killed By Bus While Crossing Street In Queens

A Queens woman died Saturday night after she was hit by a bus as she crossed Merrick Boulevard in Jamaica Hills.

Maleka Chowdhury, 54, was with her daughter around 7 p.m. when she was hit by a Nassau Inter County Express Bus.

The victim's brother, Mahfuz Chowdhury, says she had gone out shopping for groceries.

"The daughter crossed the street. The mother was in the middle of the street. At that time the bus came and hit her, my sister. After hitting, the bus continued to drive," he said.

Police say they do not expect the bus driver to face any criminal charges, but they are still investigating.

In a statement, Nassau Inter-County Express says it is cooperating with the investigation and that the driver will be tested for drugs and alcohol.
