Deadly Hit And Run On Thruway; State Police Investigating

VERONA, N.Y. -- A man from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is dead after State Police say he was hit by a car after he fell out of a moving shuttle bus limousine on the Thruway in Verona on Sunday.

Police tell NewsChannel 9 that Brian Bauer, 29, was in Central New York  for a family gathering and was riding with 14 other people.

Around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, investigators say the Oneida Nation shuttle bus limousine just left the Lava nightclub at Turning Stone Resort and Casino and was headed west.

Police say Bauer may have been intoxicated and looking for a bathroom, when he pushed open a rear limousine door and fell out. The driver of the limousine was made aware of what happened immediately and pulled over. A car driving behind the limousine hit Bauer.  The driver may have stopped at the scene but left before emergency crews arrived.

Police say witnesses report that two cars pulled over right after the victim fell out. Those cars left before medical personnel got there. State Police want to talk to those drivers or any person who may have seen them.

Police want anyone with information to call 366-6000 and ask for investigator Mark Nell.

Man Hospitalized After Falling Out of Moving Limo

STEVENSVILLE, Md. --  A 26-year-old Denton man fell Saturday night from a limousine traveling on state Route 8 near Schooner Way and is in critical condition at a Baltimore trauma center.

Maryland State Police said Bryan Kirk Butler lost his balance at about 7 p.m. Saturday while standing inside a limo owned by Gene's Limousine Service, and fell back into a door and out onto the road. The limo was travelling about 30 mph, and had about 18 people inside, all headed to a wedding.

Emergency crews from Queen Anne's County and Kent Island Fire Department responded and treated Butler before a MSP helicopter flew him to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

Police said Butler was in critical condition Saturday. Nurses at shock trauma could not give out Butler's condition Monday, and no one from the media relations department was available because of the holiday. The accident closed the road for almost two hours while police investigated.
