RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Reno bus driver is dead after being hit by an SUV while inspecting damage from an earlier crash.

Reno police say a public bus and a car got in a minor crash at about 7:40 p.m. on Friday. Authorities were starting to respond to the incident near Silver Lake Road and Silver Sky Parkway when witnesses reported the bus driver who was standing in the street had been hit by an SUV.

A fourth car immediately hit the SUV.

The bus driver was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center and pronounced dead.

Detectives say they don’t suspect alcohol or drugs were involved, but believe the setting sun made visibility poor for westbound drivers.

The bus driver’s identity hasn’t yet been released.
