    Providence, Rhode Island police say a man who was apparently sleeping in the roadway has died after being run over by a vehicle.

    The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not yet released his identity, but Verdi says the man was known to be homeless, living on the city's streets.

    The Providence Police Department's traffic bureau is asking to anyone with information about the incident to contact them.
