Tour Bus Runs over NY Pedestrian; Driver Faces DWI

Sunday, 08 May 2011 08:43 AM

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a Florida man driving a tour bus in New York City ran over a pedestrian and was charged with DWI and vehicular manslaughter.

Just before 10 p.m. Saturday, police discovered a 29-year-old man unconscious and severely injured underneath a tour bus in Manhattan. The man was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died.

Police say the bus was carrying passengers, but none was injured. It was not immediately clear where the bus was coming from or headed.

A preliminary investigation shows that the tour bus was on West 47th Street and making a turn onto 9th Avenue when it struck the victim, who was crossing the road.

Fifty-seven-year-old Steve Drappel of West Palm Beach, Fla., was arrested and charged. Police didn't have attorney information available for him.
