COLUMBUS: Authorities say a Columbus hospital researcher was killed and another was injured when they were hit by a shuttle bus near the hospital.

Police said the two were hit from behind by a Nationwide Children’s Hospital shuttle while walking along a road Wednesday morning.

Killed was David Newsom, 35, who was technical director for the Biomedical Genomics Core in the Research Institute at the hospital.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Peter White, director of the Biomedical Genomics Core, was hospitalized with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

Police said the men were walking along a section of road where the sidewalk was fenced off because of hospital construction.

Police were trying to determine if any charges would be filed.
