A pedestrian was fatally run over by an MTA bus driver at an intersection in Staten Island late Monday night.

Just after 10 p.m., officers responded to a call about the collision at Hylan Boulevard and Ebbitts Avenue. According to the NYPD, they found a 63-year-old man, identified as Staten Island resident Patrick Meehan, lying in the road, unconscious and unresponsive, with head trauma.

Meehan was taken to Staten Island University North Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to a preliminary investigation by the NYPD's Collision Investigation Squad, the 49-year-old bus driver was heading south on Hylan Boulevard when he ran over Meehan, who was crossing Hylan east to west against the pedestrian traffic signal.

“This is a tragedy. Our hearts go out to the pedestrian’s family," Craig Cipriano, President of MTA Bus Company and Vice President of Buses for NYC Transit, said in a statement. "An internal review is underway, and NYC Transit is fully cooperating with the NYPD’s collision investigation squad.”

The investigation is ongoing. This is the 221st traffic fatality this year, an increase of 15% over 2019 so far.
