Man Suffers Fatal Injuries After Pulling in Front of Bus

Mesa police have identified a man who may have intentionally swerved in front a moving bus.

Robert J. Donahue, 54, died from the injuries he sustained after being hit by a city bus. According to Ed Wessing, a spokesman for the Mesa Police Department, Donahue swerved into the path in front of the bus. At this time, it has not been determined whether or not Donahue's actions were intentional or simply a mistake.

A spokesperson for the Mesa Fire Department said that when paramedics arrived at the scene Donahue was under the bus, conscious but not alert.

Willard Boyer, the only passenger on the bus at the time of the accident, said Donahue turned right in front of the bus, giving the bus driver no time to react. Donahue allegedly hit the windshield and then rolled underneath the bus.

Donahue was taken to a nearby hospital in Scottsdale, where he later died from his injuries.

Certain actions constitute negligence-drunk driving, speeding, texting while driving, running a red light, rolling through a stop-and when these actions are taken, the driver who caused the accident can and should be held accountable for their wrongdoing.
