She was hit by a bus on the crossing and the driver didn't immediately stop as he was unaware. Horrific. She later died :(

Yes it took 45 minutes for ambulance to arrive but there were 2 first responders dealing with her the best that they could until it did arrive. The people on the scene did a magnificent job in the tragic circumstances that had occurred. I hope her family take pleasure in knowing that their loved one was not alone in her time of need and it helps with the pain that they are feeling as a result of this horrendous incident.

So the lady died? The article suggests she is just injured! Great reporting again.

Condolences to the family if this is the case

Has it stated on here or on the news that this lady has lost her life ? NO so why do people jump to conclusions? A bus once again,these drivers need to watch were there going,I was nearly hit yesterday at the hospital because one chose not to stop and just pulled out.

I was at the scene so it's not jumping to conclusions!!! The reporting is incorrect as it mentions a car hitting her when it was a single decker bus!

this article went live at 6pm on Friday night, I'm sure the person who wrote it should be cut some slack for getting this story out Friday rather than Monday!

As for the person who is questioning why it doesn't mention that she LATER died...that would have involved a bit of future predicting amazingly, read a book on time and which way it travels!

Such a sad story (factual blanks filled in thanks to the comments section, thank you) and my heart goes out to the ladies family.
