ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says a 59-year-old man has died after being run over by a public transportation bus.

Authorities say Lukowski was taken to a hospital where he later died. The FHP was continuing an investigation on Tuesday. No further details were immediately available.
