NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a bus hit and killed a man at New York’s busy Port Authority Bus Terminal during rush hour.

Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo says it happened around 5 p.m. at the bus depot near Times Square. It’s the nation’s busiest bus station, with more than 58 million commuters passing through it last year.

The 67-year-old man, from Garrison, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police aren’t releasing his name while working to notify his family.

The circumstances of the incident are under investigation. It is unknown which company or agency owned the bus.

Pentangelo says the bus driver stayed at the accident scene.

Buses were delayed, and long lines formed at the terminal.
