The victim, identified only as a man in his 20s, was expected to undergo surgery late Friday night.

Police and fire crews said it appeared the man was running to catch up to a departing bus when he slipped, fell underneath it and was run over.

Investigators planned to review video footage from a camera mounted on the side of the bus to confirm exactly what happened.
