Daily News reports: School bus kills man in Woodside
A 52-year-old grandfather was killed Monday when he was hit by a school bus while loading his flat-bed truck in Queens.
Thackoo Hargobin, of Canarsie, Brooklyn, died at the scene on Borough Place in Woodside about 8:30 a.m., still clutching a cargo strap in his hand, cops and witnesses said.
He was knocked off the back of his truck when he was hit by a yellow school bus full of disabled children heading north on Borough Place, according to officials and witnesses.
“It’s a tragedy, a horrible accident,” said John Garuti, 60, owner of Super-Tex Products, where Hargobin was loading building materials.
“I think he was gone immediately.”
