Police and MTA officials are investigating a deadly accident at the College Point Bus Depot on Tuesday morning that claimed the life of a 59-year-old employee from Middle Village.

According to law enforcement sources, a 56-year-old female bus driver was driving a bus in reverse inside the depot on 28th Avenue between Ulmer Street and College Point Boulevard at about 10:20 a.m. on March 27, just as a 59-year-old Stephen Livecchi was changing tires on a nearby vehicle.

Apparently, the bus driver did not see Livecchi, and the reversing bus wound up striking and running over him.

Officers from the 109th Precinct and EMS units rushed to the scene. Livecchi, who resided on 69th Avenue in Middle Village, was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to WABC-TV, the bus driver is being questioned about the incident. Police sources indicated that no criminality is suspected.

The investigation is ongoing.

Being an unionized MTA employee is one of the most difficult jobs in NYC: My thoughts and prayers are with his family, his friends and his fellow College Point Depot co-workers.
