SEPTA Bus Runs Over Man's Legs


A man is fighting for his life after he was run over by a SEPTA bus in the Nicetown section of the city.

SEPTA officials say a Route R Bus was driving at the intersection of Hunting Park Avenue and Wissahickon when a 60-year-old man began to bang on the rear doors of the vehicle. Officials say the man then slipped and fell under the rear tires which ran over both of his legs. 

Police say one of the man’s legs was partially amputated. He was taken to Temple University Hospital where he is in critical condition.
