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 said they did not expect the bus driver to face any criminal charges, but they were still investigating Sunday.
In a statement, Nassau Inter-County Express officials said they are cooperating with the investigation and that under their standard protocol the driver will be tested for drugs and alcohol and the bus will be inspected.
