A Denver man was killed last week when he got off a bus, slipped on the snow and was run over by the vehicle, according to the local CBS TV station.
On Tuesday Mario Castro, 60, got off a Regional Transportation District bus at snowy West Colfax Avenue and Mariposa Street, according to the TV station’s online report.
Police were investigating the accident, but apparently Castro held onto the side of the bus so he wouldn’t fall, but he slipped anyway and fell underneath it. The bus’s rear wheels rolled over him, killing him.
Denver got several feet of snow last week, and officials and residents have not been able to keep up and shovel out the city’s estimated 10,000 bus stops, the TV station reported.
Many RTD passengers complained that they were having difficulting disembarking from buses, because of slippery, snow-covered bus stops.
