A 55-year-old Raleigh man has died after being hit by a bus near North Carolina State University.

Investigators say Jeffrey Wayne Powers stumbled into the side of a bus and fell into the road at around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. He was run over by the rear wheels of the bus.

Powers later died at the hospital, and police say it appeared Powers had been drinking when he fell.

No charges have been filed against the bus driver, and police say the bus was going about 5 mph when Powers fell. The driver and six passengers on the bus weren't hurt.
