City of Littleton says 'it appears' man dragged to death deliberately crawled under RTD bus

LITTLETON, Colo. – The city of Littleton said Tuesday that “it appears” the man who died after he was dragged by an RTD bus last week had crawled under the bus on purpose while it was stopped.

The city said that investigators had reviewed surveillance video and talked to witnesses before the determination was made. It said the driver appeared to be unaware that the man, identified as 31-year-old Patrick Tshudy, was under the bus.

But the city said the investigation into Tshudy’s motives was ongoing. No charges have so far been filed in the incident.
