From the Daily News:
A construction worker was killed after an MTA bus clipped the lift he was on, sending him plummeting to the pavement Monday night, police said.
Cesar Cepedes, 44, sustained severe head trauma after falling near the intersection of Sutphin Blvd. and Archer Ave. in Jamaica, Queens, about 11:40 p.m.
Cepedes, of Hempstead, L.I., was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The bus was heading north on Sutphin Blvd. through a Long Island Rail Road overpass when the top of the vehicle struck Cepedes' lift, cops said.
The driver stayed on the scene and was not charged.
An MTA spokesman said the incident was under investigation and that the driver was undergoing blood and alcohol testing - a standard procedure after accidents. Results were not expected for at least several days.
