    Pedestrian hit by bus on High Street

    The woman was rushed to John Radcliffe Hospital in a serious condition

    A woman has been taken to hospital after a bus crash on Magdalen Bridge around 3pm today.

    Cherwell understands she was rushed to John Radcliffe Hospital in a serious condition.

    Police closed the bridge, causing considerable traffic delays and disruption to the bus timetable.

    Oxford Bus Company has admitted that one of its buses was involved in the incident. Spokesman Greig Box Turnbull told the Oxford Mail: “We can confirm one of our City3 buses was involved in an incident with a female pedestrian on Magdalen Bridge at 2.15pm.

    “An investigation will be carried out to understand how it happened. We are liaising with the emergency services and will help in any way we can, this will include reviewing our CCTV footage. Our thoughts are with the lady who was taken to hospital and our driver.”
