RENO, Nev. (AP) - Reno police have identified a man who died after he was hit and then pinned under a bus.

Officers say 59-year-old Andrew Matschke of Sun Valley died at a hospital after the incident Friday afternoon in north Reno.

Police say the man had stepped off a Regional Transportation Commission bus and was walking on the sidewalk before he stepped off the cub and fell against the side of the bus. Investigators say his leg became pinned under a rear wheel when the bus moved forward.

Authorities say Matschke’s alcohol level may have contributed to the incident.
