PATERSON, N.J. — A body was found in the driveway of a New Jersey bus terminal in the middle of the night Thursday, authorities said.

The discovery was made about 2:25 a.m. at the Broadway Bus Terminal in Paterson, according to New Jersey Transit. Authorities said a bus ran over the man, though it's unclear if he was already dead or if he was killed by the bus.

Someone called police to say they'd found what appeared to be an adult man lying on the ground. Officers arrived and determined the man was dead.

The deceased has not been identified, and the circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.

Commuter Abshana Uddin and others waiting at the bus terminal Thursday said homeless people often sleep nearby and said there is a shelter directly next door.

There are lights and surveillance cameras underneath the terminal canopy, which NJ Transit is reviewing in the search for answers about what happened.
