A woman was killed after being struck by a hit-and-run driver and then mowed over by an oncoming MTA bus in Middle Village early Friday.

Caroline Connors, 67, was walking on the roadway in front of 69-82 Eliot Ave. at around 12:45 a.m. when a driver in an eastbound car plowed into her, police said. She was just a short distance from her home.

Connors was knocked to the ground and then subsequently hit by an oncoming MTA bus that was also traveling eastbound, according to police.

Police responded to the scene and found Connors on the ground with severe trauma. EMS pronounced her dead at the location.

The driver of the car and the MTA bus operator did not stop, police said.

There have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

Connors lived around the corner from the location on 69th Lane.

I blame the bike lanes

Sure, this is another example proving that the vast majority of pedestrian deaths are caused by cars. But my delivery guy ran a stop sign while riding his bike to my house! Way worse.

Between 70 St and 69 St that’s why the women got hit by the car and 🚌.

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
