An elderly man has been killed after being hit by a SEPTA bus and officials are trying to determine whether the bus driver realized he struck the man.

The 64-year-old man was hit by a SEPTA bus at 8:49 p.m. on Friday at 79th St. and Cheltenham Ave. in the Cedarbrook section of the city, police said.

He was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he later died.

The bus kept on going after hitting the man, police said.

A bus, police believe was the one involved in the incident, was located a short time later at Broad and Erie Streets in North Philadelphia. That's about five miles from the scene.

However, the driver told investigators he did not know he hit anyone. The bus also did not have any visible signs of damage, SEPTA officials said.
