WEST HARLEM — A woman was hospitalized with serious injuries after she was hit by an express bus Tuesday morning, an MTA spokesman said.
A BxM8 bus was on Second Avenue between East 123rd and 124th streets at 9:30 a.m. when the right side of the bus struck a woman who was walking in the street, the spokesman said.
The woman was taken by ambulance to Harlem Hospital, the FDNY said. The woman "fell clear of the bus" and was "conscious and alert," the MTA spokesman said.
The bus was in service at the time but it wasn't known whether any passengers were on board, the spokesman said.
