Police are appealing for witnesses after a woman was hit by a bus at Peterborough Bus Station.

The victim, a 23-year-old woman from Peterborough, was walking along the footpath of the bus station at Queensgate shopping centre at about 3.45pm when she was hit.

The bus had left the station and was heading towards the roundabout with Bourges Boulevard and turned right, causing the front nearside of the bus to encroach onto the pavement and collide with the pedestrian, striking her to the back of the head with its wing mirror.

Ambulances from the East of England Ambulance Service, along with the Magpas Helimedix team were called to the scene, with the Magpas helicopter landing on the car park.

The woman sustained serious, but not life threatening, head injuries and was taken to Peterborough City Hospital by land ambulance before being transferred to Addenbrooke’s where she remains.

Anyone who witnessed the incident should contact the roads policing unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
