A man was struck and killed by a city bus in the Bronx.

The victim was hit while the bus driver was making a right turn at Starling Avenue and Castle Hill Avenue in the Parkchester section.

Investigators say the bus driver didn't realize he had struck the man and kept going.

After running about a block, an eyewitness to the accident caught up with the bus and alerted the driver about what happened.

It is not likely that the bus driver will face criminal charges.
