A 53-year-old Las Vegas man died Friday morning after walking into the path of an oncoming public bus, Metro Police said.

The incident happened at 11:28 a.m. near the intersection of North Las Vegas Boulevard and Owens Avenue. The preliminary investigation indicated the man, Leo Miller, may have intentionally walked in front of the bus, police said.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has ruled Miller's death a suicide.

The RTC Max Bus was heading north on Las Vegas Boulevard when Miller — who was standing on a sidewalk in front of Woodlawn Cemetery — entered the roadway in the immediate path of the vehicle, police said.

The right front of the bus hit Miller, causing him to be thrown to the road, police said. Medical personnel pronounced him dead on scene.

The 52-year-old driver and 30 passengers aboard the bus were not injured, police said. The collision remains under investigation.
