One person was seriously injured after a wild accident in Queens Village Friday morning involving a school bus, truck and fruit stand, according to authorities.

The incident occurred at about 11:45 a.m. at the corner of Hillside Avenue and Hollis Court Boulevard, near the southern end of the Clearview Expressway.

Police said a school bus with nearly 30 children on board suddenly lost control and struck a Penske truck parked outside the New Giant Farm fruit store at 211-14 Hillside Ave.

The impact caused the truck to mount the sidewalk and strike the fruit stand, causing structural damage to the building and an awning to collapse onto a pedestrian.

Paramedics brought the injured pedestrian to a local hospital in critical condition.

The children on board the bus were removed to Long Island Jewish Medical Center for observation, police said.

An investigation is ongoing.
