Man dies after being hit by DART bus

A man was killed after being hit by a Dallas Area Rapid Transit bus and pinned underneath it.

The man was hit while crossing on the corner of Hunnicut Road and Samuell Boulevard in east Dallas early Wednesday morning.

A DART spokesman said the driver heard something, pulled over and found the man under the bus.

Dallas Fire-Rescue’s Urban Search and Rescue Team had to help free the man. They used airbags and other things to help lift the bus.

He was rushed to the hospital but did not survive. His name has not yet been released.

DART placed the driver on administrative leave.
