Pulaski County Special School District officials have identified the man who was killed Monday after being hit by his own bus.

A news release states 40-year old Jason Johnson had been a mechanic with the school district for nearly a decade. He worked for the district from 2007 to 2016 and had just returned in February of this year.

Johnson died around 2:00pm Monday afternoon after being called to fix a mechanical problem on one of the district’s Career-Based Initiative buses.

After he has stepped off of the bus to check something, the bus began rolling down the street. Johnson reportedly tried to get back inside to stop it, but the bus hit him.
