An MTA bus hit and killed a pedestrian crossing a Brooklyn street early Thursday, police say.
The bus was turning from Wyckoff Avenue to Palmetto Street in Bushwick at about 5:15 a.m. when the rear wheel portion of the vehicle hit a man in his 40s crossing Myrtle and Wyckoff avenues, according to the NYPD.
Police say the bus driver may have not known he hit a person and continued down Palmetto Street for a short distance. When he found out that the bus hit someone, he stopped.
The pedestrian was taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center with severe trauma. He was pronounced dead on arrival.
No arrests have been made.
