PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A man was injured after his arm got stuck in the door of a Port Authority bus and he fell.

The University of Pittsburgh police shut Atwood Street down Tuesday afternoon, and the right lane of Forbes was closed for about a block.

A Port Authority police officer says the victim -- a man in his early 60s -- was exiting the back of the bus when the accident happened. His arm became stuck in the door.
