Hampshire pensioner fights for life after collision with bus
AN elderly Hampshire woman is fighting for her life after she was involved in a collision with a single-decker bus.
The woman, in her 70s, is in a critical but stable condition after suffering life-threatening head injuries in the crash outside the Royal Bournemouth Hospital at about 4.30pm today.
The pensioner was involved in a collision with a number 33 Yellow Bus bound for Christchurch while she was crossing the junction of Deansleigh Road and Castle Lane East on foot, heading into the hospital.
An investigation has been launched into the circumstances of the crash, which caused some delays during the evening rush hour.
Sergeant Stuart Pitman of Dorset Police said: “It was very busy in this area around the time of the accident and we have already had a lot of drivers witnessed the crash coming forward.
“I would be grateful if anyone who witnessed this incident would get in touch, and I would like to thank drivers for their patience while we have been dealing with this matter.”
