The man, whose name was not released, was hit by the Route 42 bus as it turned from Chestnut Street onto 22nd about 6:15 a.m., said SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch. The victim was pronounced dead at Hahnemann University Hospital shortly after.
Busch said seven passengers were on the bus when the accident occurred. No other injuries were reported. Philadelphia police are investigating the incident.
