ROSEDALE — A St. Albans senior was mowed down by an MTA bus in Rosedale late Sunday, the NYPD said.
Police believe 65-year-old Kenneth Yard was attempting to cross Rockaway Boulevard at First Street when he was hit.
Yard was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to cops.
Yard had just gotten dinner with 65-year-old wife Betty Yard and was feeling ill on his drive home around 11:40 a.m., the New York Post reported. He was only stepping out of his car to get some air near Rockaway Boulevard and First Street when the Q113 bus hit him, the Post said.
The bus driver remained at the scene and the investigation was ongoing, police said.
