A woman was taken to hospital yesterday after she was knocked down by a bus in Aberdeen.
The accident happened as the woman tried to cross Rosemount Terrace, near the Father’s House church, when she was struck by a Stagecoach hydrogen bus at about 1.10pm.
She was taken by ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, although her injuries were described by police as being “non life-threatening”.
Last night a spokeswoman for Stagecoach said they would be carrying out an investigation into the incident.
She said: “One of our vehicles on Service 59 was involved in an incident in which a pedestrian was injured in Aberdeen at around 1.10pm.
“Our first thoughts are for the welfare of the person involved who we believe was taken to hospital.
“Safety is our absolute priority. We will assist police with their inquiries into the incident as well as carrying out our own investigation.”
Elsewhere in Aberdeen, a woman died after being found seriously ill on a street in Dyce early yesterday.
A member of the public discovered the woman, in her 40s, collapsed in Riverview Drive at around 7am.
Emergency services were called to the scene a short time later but were unable to revive her.
A police spokesman confirmed a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
