A city bus hit a woman in downtown Bangor Saturday afternoon, Bangor Police Sgt. Kevin MacLaren said mid-afternoon Saturday.
The pedestrian is a woman in her 70s, who suffered serious injuries, and was rushed to a local medical center for treatment. No one on the Community Connector bus was injured, according to Bangor Police Sgt. Wade Betters.
Betters said the woman remained in the hospital Sunday.
The crash occurred at a busy, four-way intersection at the corner of Main and Hammond streets closest to Umami Noodle Bar. Local shop managers said they saw an emergency vehicle from Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center at the scene.
Police received the call at 2:35 p.m, Betters said.
He said it appears the bus was turning off Hammond Street onto Main Street when it collided with the pedestrian.
Bangor Police Department’s Accident Reconstruction Team and members of the department’s Criminal Investigation Division remained on scene in the late afternoon-early evening. The streets, which were closed, were expected to open in the evening.
The names of those involved were not being released Saturday evening, police said.
Police are asking for anyone who witnessed the collision to contact Bangor Detective Jeremy Brock by calling 207-947-7384 ext 5734 or via email at Jeremy.email@example.com.
