    Firefighters worked to rescue a man who was hit by an MTS bus and became stuck under the vehicle in City Heights Friday afternoon, officials said.

    The incident happened just after 3:30 p.m. at University Avenue and Van Dyke Avenue.

    Firefighters were called to the scene to rescue the man, who was apparently pinned underneath the bus.

    Officials said the man was conscious, but at this point, the extent of his injuries is unknown.

    Police temporarily shut down eastbound University Avenue between 42nd and 43rd Streets following the accident. The road opened again around 5 p.m.

    By 4 p.m., fire crews had freed the victim from the bus. He was taken to Mercy Hospital with unknown injuries.

    A sergeant at the scene told NBC 7 the man is expected to be okay. It is unclear if the bus was making a turn when the man was struck, or if the man was crossing the street.
