SEATTLE — A 43-year-old man was struck and killed by a Sound Transit Express bus in Seattle.

KOMO reports police and medics responded to the scene at about 8:35 p.m. Thursday near the South Lake Union neighborhood after receiving 911 calls about a bus hitting a pedestrian.

The first responders began attempting first aid on the victim, but they were unsuccessful and the man was declared dead at the scene.
