Two Queens pedestrians lost their lives in separate accidents Tuesday.

The first incident occurred around 12 p.m. when a woman in her 50s was trying to cross the westbound lanes of the Belt Parkway near North Conduit Boulevard and was struck by a motorcycle. She was pronounced dead at the scene and the motorcyclist, a man in his 40s, was taken to Jamaica Hospital in serious condition.

The NYPD Highway Patrol Accident Investigation Squad is investigating the accident.

Later the same day, around 11:15 p.m., a Chevy Avalanche hit and killed a 22-year-old woman as she was attempting to cross the intersection of 47th Street and Laurel Hill Boulevard. She was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The operator of the vehicle remained on the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
