Jordan Miller, the younger brother of Lost Boys star Jason Patric died on Thursday, Jan. 11, after a bus stuck him in New Jersey.
According to NY Daily New, Miller, 56, was crossing Bridge Plaza South at Lemoine Avenue that morning around 5 AM when a transit bus making a left turn hit him. First responders performed CPR before rushing him to a hospital in serious condition, but he soon succumbed to his injuries.
Jordan Miller had worked for a Port Authority Bus Terminal as a customer service representative for over 12 years.
“I had met Jordan over a dozen years ago, and he had left a lasting impression,”Port Authority of New York and New Jersey chairman Kevin J. O’Toole said in a statement. “…By all accounts, he was a hard-working, model employee.”
O’Toole added that Miller was “an avid runner who completed the New York City Marathon for 13 consecutive years, which says something about his focus and commitment to a goal.” Miller accomplished those races despite being involved in a serious motorcycle crash that resulted in around 30 surgeries.
“Jordan literally died on his way to work as the happy warrior that he was,” he continued.
