The New York City Times sports editor who was hit by a bus and died on Sunday morning has died.

Steve Stotz, 58, was hit in the head by the vehicle during a protest in the city, a source told CNN affiliate WCBS.

Stotz was an anchor for the station, and he was in the newsroom at the time of the accident.

He was working for the paper as an associate editor for more than 30 years.

The accident occurred in front of the Times’ offices on the Upper East Side.

Stots family said they were still gathering information, and that they would release more details on Sunday night.

The incident happened shortly after 9 a.m. on Sunday as the protest was taking place outside of the offices of the New York Post, the newspaper of record.

The driver, who is believed to have been wearing a mask, was being escorted from the scene by police.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:24 p.m., the New Jersey State Police said.

The police chief said the driver was wearing a helmet, a face shield and gloves, but did not say what type of protective equipment he was wearing.

The driver also did not appear to be wearing a face mask, the New Yorker said.

Stott was a longtime sports reporter for the New England Patriots.

The paper reported that StotZs family said he had been covering football for the past five years, but his previous coverage focused on sports and the Olympics.

The New York Police Department said Stotzes death was being investigated as a homicide.
