The woman who was killed while riding in a Porsche Cayman that slammed into the rear of a parked school bus in Flushing has been identified as a visitor from South Korea, police said. The driver has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

Nara An, 24, has been staying at the home of her fiancé on Roosevelt Avenue in Flushing since October and was planning to return home at the end of the month, cops said.

The driver, Island Park man Kyung Song, 29, a pharmacy student and resident at Montefiore Medical Centers, was driving his $60,000 sports car with An as his passenger. After a night of drinking, he was heading west on Sanford Avenue at about 3:30 a.m. Friday when he slammed into the parked bus, according to the NYPD.

Song was taken to Booth Memorial Hospital, where cops said he is in a stable condition.

Police said Song had a blood-alcohol content of nearly twice the legal limit.
