PATERSON — A man was found dead early Thursday morning at the Broadway NJ Transit bus terminal in Paterson.

NJ Transit says he was lying in the middle of a bus lane, when he was run over by a bus. Authorities first received the call around 2:30 a.m.

Investigators say the man suffered severe injuries to the chest, neck and head.

Commuters say the news is tragic and it’s important to always be aware during the early morning hours. Others say they haven't seen anything like this happen here before.

The scene was cleared in time for the morning rush as authorities left around 5 a.m. with service running normally out of the terminal.
