    A Massachusetts hospital group says one of its doctors was struck by a bus while on vacation with his family in Canada and killed. 

    The chief executive physician at Baystate Health in Springfield said in a statement to The Republican newspaper that Dr. Michael Plevyak died Sunday in Vancouver, British Columbia. 

    Vancouver police have confirmed that a 49-year-old man from Massachusetts was killed after getting struck by a bus that pulled away from a curb. Police say the victim was with his family, and an elderly man and Plevyak's 15-year-old daughter were also injured. 

    Plevyak lived in East Longmeadow and worked in the hospital's obstetrics-gynecology department. 

    Chief physician executive Dr. Andrew Artenstein says Plevyak "leaves a legacy here as a beloved physician and educator."

    The crash remains under investigation.
