Two men were struck and killed in accidents in Queens, police said today.

A 65-year-old man was trying to cross Rockaway Boulevard near 1st Street in Meadowmere about 11:40 p.m. yesterday when he was hit by an MTA bus heading north, cops said.

EMS rushed the pedestrian to Jamaica Hospital, but he could not be revived and was pronounced dead there.

Campoverde, who lived a few blocks away from the accident scene, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he died.
