Officials: Man dragged by RTD bus intentionally crawled underneath

LITTLETON, Colo. — The city of Littleton confirmed Tuesday that a man who was dragged five blocks by an RTD bus intentionally crawled underneath the bus when it stopped to pick up passengers.

According to witness statements and video obtained by investigators, it appears that Patrick Tshudy, 31, of Greenwood Village deliberately got underneath the bus, unbeknownst to the driver.

A spokesman for the Littleton Police Department said Tshudy was dragged from Prince Street to near Windermere Street on Thursday afternoon. A driver noticed, sped past the bus and stopped it.

The man was killed in the incident.

Police closed eastbound Littleton Boulevard between Prince and Windermere Streets while authorities investigated.

No charges have been filed in the incident and investigators have not said what may have motivated Tshudy’s actions.
