CENTRAL POINT, Ore. - A man was pronounced dead on scene after being struck by a Greyhound bus.

Police say it happened near the Pilot Travel Center at around 2:00 a.m. Thursday morning while the bus was taking a rest stop.

Passengers told nearby employees the man was yelling and banging on the bus as he was chasing it, but tripped.

That is when the wheels of the bus rolled over him.

According to police interviews with passengers the bus had several disruptions throughout the night.

"That bus throughout the night when it left I believe the Seattle area or at least the Portland area had multiple issues where people were removed from the bus because of possible drinking and drug use. "

Because of these statements police has no yet concluded whether the victim was late getting on the bus or had been kicked off.

Regardless, police is investigating whether the driver was aware the victim was chasing the bus.

Detectives are now conducting a full investigation.

They say the driver is cooperating and was not intoxicated.

Greyhound is providing a list of passengers to help police identify the victim.
