MANILA -- A man was killed after being run over by a passenger bus along the southbound lane of EDSA in Shaw Boulevard on Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Initial investigation showed that the man, who has yet to be unidentified, went under the bus while it was stationary.

He was then run over by the bus when it moved.

The victim, believed to be aged between 35 to 40 years old, was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival.

The man was 5' 7" in height, slim in built, and was wearing blue shirt and pants.

According to the bus driver, 43-year-old Rowell Boyson, he did not notice the victim when the latter went under his vehicle.

He said he was also not aware that he had ran over someone until he was flagged down by a traffic enforcer.

"Wala akong naramdaman. Kasi kung naramdaman ko yun, hindi ko naman gagawin yun. Siyempre tao yun eh," he said. -- Report from Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News
