Doctor dies in bus crash

A Massachusetts hospital group says one of its doctors was struck and killed by a bus while on vacation with his family in Vancouver.

The chief executive physician at Baystate Health in Springfield said in a statement to The Republican newspaper that Dr. Michael Plevyak died Sunday in the downtown Vancouver crash.

Vancouver police have confirmed that a 49-year-old man from Massachusetts was killed after getting struck by a bus that pulled away from a curb. Police say the victim was with his family, and an elderly man and Plevyak's 15-year-old daughter were also injured.

Plevyak worked in the hospital's obstetrics-gynecology department.

Chief physician executive Dr. Andrew Artenstein says Plevyak "leaves a legacy here as a beloved physician and educator."

The crash remains under investigation.
