Brooklyn man, 72, dies after his foot is run over by MTA bus

A 72-year-old man whose foot was run over by a city bus near Brooklyn College has died, police said Friday.

The senior was crossing Ave. H and Nostrand Ave. in Midwood about 6:15 p.m. on Feb. 18 when the MTA bus struck him, rolling over his foot and lower leg.

EMS rushed the man to Kings County Hospital, where he died Wednesday from “complications” stemming from the foot injury, cops said. His name was not immediately disclosed.

The bus operator, 50, was turning from Ave. H onto the heavily congested Flatbush Ave. when he struck the victim. He remained at the scene and was given a summons for failure to yield and exercise due care, cops said.
