QUEENS — A woman was fatally struck by a bus in a hit-and-run in Flushing Thursday night, police said.

The woman, whose identity wasn't immediately known, was near Main Street and Kissena Boulevard about 8:30 p.m. crossing mid-block when she was hit by the right side of the bus, according to the NYPD and sources close to the investigation.

The bus, which had "Skyliner" written on its side, drove away after it hit her, an NYPD spokeswoman said.

Several other cars also hit her afterwards, witnesses said.

"I saw the body in the street. She was on her side. She was laying there and a couple cars were running her over," said Edward Fauntleroy, 50.

"At least five cars hit her. It was ridiculous. You can't tell me none of the other cars saw that body. It's Main Street, not some alley," he added.

The victim, who lived roughly a thousand yards from the site of the accident, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and sources.

The bus was heading to Foxwood Casino when it was stopped less than two hours later by Connecticut police near Madison, CT, sources said.  

Police officers recognized the bus' "Skyliner" inscription and stopped it on the I-95 highway, according to sources. 

There were no arrests as of Friday afternoon, an NYPD spokesman said, adding that the investigation was still on-going.

An NYPD spokesman would not say if they were currently questioning the driver.
