NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- There's been another fatal vehicle-pedestrian accident in the city.

A 58-year-old Queens woman was struck and killed by a mini-school bus carrying three children at 82nd Road and Kew Gardens Road in Queens.

It happened around 6:45 a.m. Tuesday. The woman was in the crosswalk at the time. The driver remained on the scene.

Police say Elise Hellinger of Queens was pronounced dead at the scene.

There was no word on any charges.

An accident in Park Slope that left two children dead and their mothers injured, prompted a march for safe streets in Brooklyn on Monday night.
