If you’ve been following the story of a Spring Valley man falling out of a moving school bus, he has died.

Joseph Marchiando was pronounced dead Sunday night at OSF St. Francis Medical Center. He was flown there Saturday, September 26th after losing his balance and falling out the door of a moving school bus along Route 6 in Spring Valley.

The 48-year-old was part of a group that rented the bus to take them back and forth from a golf outing. Others on the bus say Marchiando was standing up talking to them when he fell down the bus’ steps.

The driver says she was slowing to make a turn and stopped the bus and called 9-1-1 as soon as Marchiando fell out.
