KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Police say a 59-year-old man died when he was hit by a city bus on a highway in central Kansas City.

The victim, Kenneth Cowans, was hit Monday evening on northbound Highway 71. Police say a bus driving north on the highway hit Cowans. No passengers were on the bus and the drivers stopped to talk to police.

Police say in a news release that Cowans was either trying to cross the busy highway or walking along it when he was hit.

The accident occurred near where people had pulled down fencing to make it easier to walk across the highway.
