Handicapped Man Dies After Being Hit by Bus Which Crippled Him

A Philadelphia man who had lost his leg when a city bus hit him previously, was hit by another city bus on the same corner, and died.

61-year old Milton Boneta, who lived at a nursing home just a few minutes away, was apparently crossing the street when the bus struck him. It dragged the man and his wheelchair quite a distance before coming to a complete stop.

Years earlier, Boneta was at the same intersection when a city bus struck him, causing him to lose his leg, making him wheelchair-bound. The bus company said it had not confirmed the earlier accident and had no comment at this time.

An investigation is "far from over."
