MIDTOWN EAST — A woman was struck by an MTA bus at a busy intersection in Midtown East Tuesday evening, police and witnesses said.
The pedestrian was struck at Third Avenue and East 57th Street about 5:25 p.m., the FDNY said.
The victim was rushed to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center in serious but stable condition, fire officials said.
Authorities did not immediately have further details about the victim.
The X22 bus was traveling on Third Avenue and making a left onto East 57th Street when the front left side of the bus struck the pedestrian, according to an MTA spokeswoman.
"She was just laying there under the bus. It seemed like the wheel went over her," said John, 27, a doorman who works at a building nearby and declined to give his last name.
The woman initially wasn't moving but she appeared to move her arm after "a few minutes," he added.
"The bus driver was crying," he said. "He was just shocked."
