Pair die in Queens motorcycle---Q47 bus crash
Posted by Gold_12TH on Mon May 14 00:14:54 2012Two men were killed in Queens tonight when their motorcycle plowed into the side of a city bus, cops said.
The men were riding on a Suzuki motorcycle going eastbound on 31st Avenue in Jackson Heights when a Q47 bus in front of them made a right turn onto 73rd Street around 8:08 p.m., authorities said.
The motorcyclist struck the right front of the bus, said MTA spokeswoman Deirdre Parker.
The bus driver and two passengers suffered minor injuries and were taken to Elmhurst Hospital.
No criminality is suspected, cops said.
The two men one 25 years old, the other unidentified were pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital.
A police source said the motorcycle was going very fast when it hit the bus.
