A female pedestrian has recently been injured by a bus in Norwich. The accident happened in one of the main shopping streets.
It was the number 44 Sanders bus which was involved in the accident. The bus was heading in the direction of Tombland at the time.
Initially there were reports which were saying a male was running out of a shop and got hit by a bus, it later emerged it was a lady with a buggy who was knocked over. Ambulances were on the scene very quickly and took the pedestrian to hospital. It is understood she was the only person to suffer injuries.
The police attended and closed the road while investigations were being carried out. They are currently appealing for witnesses to come forward. There is CCTV in the area which will help to determine what happened.
It is not yet known if the injured pedestrian can, or will make a claim for injury compensation as a result of the bus accident.

A pensioner was injured on a bus as she was thrown with force as the bus took a sharp turn. This happened in Botley, Oxford as the stagecoach bus turned from West Way into Eynsham road.
The pensioner, Rae Taurff, hit her head on the pole in the bus causing a severe cut to her head. The bus accident resulted in the lady going to hospital and having eleven staples to her head.
There was an off duty nurse at hand who was offered paper towels, by the bus driver, to stem the bleeding. She refused to use these. The blood was pouring from the severe cut.
Other passengers were offering tissues to help, but these are not sterilised and could cause further medical problems.
Following the bus accident the driver stopped and dialled 999. An ambulance arrived and took Mrs Taurff from Witney to the John Radcliffe Hospital for treatment.
Mrs Taurff suffered a 10cm long deep cut to her head which is why staples were needed, she had to stay in hospital overnight.
The bus is not required to carry a first aid box, as this ruling means that only buses or trains which travel at least 50km are required to carry the first aid boxes.
The pensioner is trying to get buses to carry first aid boxes as there are many bus accidents which can leave passengers initially untreated. Mrs Taurff believes the cost of a first aid kit is minimal compared to the difference it could make to a passenger injured on a bus. The Oxford Bus Company spokesman Mr Phil Ashworth said “We have no plans to put first-aid kits on local buses. We believe it’s best for the passenger for us to get professional help as soon as possible” Stagecoach buses are said to be considering carrying first-aid kits.
