Man dies after being hit, dragged by bus near downtown Littleton

A man died after being struck and dragged by an RTD bus near downtown Littleton the afternoon of June 7, Littleton Police said.

Patrick Tshudy, a 31-year-old from Greenwood Village, was hit just after 3 p.m. and dragged by the bus from near the crosswalk on the north end of the Littleton Downtown Light Rail Station almost seven blocks to the intersection of West Littleton Boulevard and South Windermere Avenue, said Littleton Police Department spokesman Rick Redmond.

The bus stopped after a car following behind the bus saw a body emerge from beneath it, after which the driver of the car swerved around the bus and stopped in front of it to alert the driver, Redmond said.

Police declined to identify the bus driver. The bus driver was cooperating with investigators, and it is unknown whether he or she will face charges, Redmond said.

The bus was travelling RTD's route 66, which starts at Arapahoe Community College and largely follows Arapahoe Road to its intersection with South Parker Road.

Roughly 15 passengers were on the bus at the time, Redmond said. Eastbound Alamo Avenue and Littleton Boulevard was closed for several hours on June 7.
