Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says 72-year-old Raul E. Medina was struck around 9 a.m. Tuesday while walking near Clinton Avenue and Astor Street in Newark. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

Murray says it’s not clear if the bus driver knew he had struck someone. The bus continued on after the accident, but it was eventually stopped.

No charges have been filed so far, but the investigation is ongoing.
