(KANSAS CITY, Mo., AP) — Police say a man died when he was hit by a city bus on a highway in central Kansas City.
The man was hit Monday evening on northbound Highway 71. Police say two buses were driving in tandem on the highway when the accident occurred. No passengers were on either bus and both drivers stopped to talk to police.
Sgt. Bill Mahoney says the man probably was trying to cross the road but he might have been walking and drifted into the lane of traffic.
Relatives told local media that the middle-aged man lived in the area. The accident occurred near where people had pulled down fencing to make it easier to walk across the highway.
