DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A DART bus driver spotted a dead man in the road early Tuesday morning, and police are now trying to figure out how he died.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit officials say a bus driver spotted someone lying down in the middle of Martin Luther King boulevard, just west of I-45.

Police say that person had died. They don't know whether that was a homeless person or how he died, but they say they say the bus had surveillance video and they'll look at that as they try to figure out what happened.

Police released the bus to DART about an hour and a half after the crash.
