A woman was hit by a bus in Manners Street this afternoon.


Nothing stopped other buses from getting through. They drove around the injured person and the bus that had hit her.


Then police arrived, with an ambulance.

The DomPost quoted a witness as saying he heard a loud “bang” as the woman struck the front of the bus, spun to its rear and landed head-first on the edge of the pavement.

The woman was able to talk to police and paramedics before she was taken to hospital in a critical condition. A Wellington Free Ambulance spokesman said later than she was treated in the emergency department and is now in a stable condition.
