A man was killed when his car ran into the back of a Charlotte Area Transit System bus Saturday night, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.
The CATS bus had just pulled away from picking up a passenger at a bus stop on the 4700 block of North Tryon Street when a 2007 Nissan Sentra ran into it from the rear, police said.
The Nissan driver, 37-year-old James Allen Sumpter, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said they suspect Sumpter was using alcohol or drugs before the crash, which happened at about 11:15 p.m.
