By  | 

A tour bus “flying” down a busy Queens street crashed into an MTA bus Monday, killing three people and injuring 16 others, witnesses and authorities said.

The Dahlia Travel and Tours bus slammed into the Q20 bus around 6:15 a.m. at Northern Blvd. and Main St., sending both vehicles careening onto the sidewalk and killing a 68-year-old pedestrian, officials said.

The driver of the Dahlia bus, Raymond Mong, 49, was among the dead. A 55-year-old man aboard the MTA bus also died.

“When they collided, I felt the vibration.”

“The tour bus was flying,” said Mike Ramos, 47, a construction superintendent who was sitting in his truck nearby.

“There was people pinned under the front of the city bus. A lady was crying and screaming, ‘Get me out! Get me out!’” he said.
