CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say a man on a bus stop bench who was pinned against a building when a minivan struck him has died in Cincinnati.

City police say 55-year-old Wendell Allen Reed was sitting on the bench around 1 p.m. Wednesday when a minivan struck him after ending up on the sidewalk following a crash with another vehicle. Reed was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.
