INWOOD — A woman was struck by a casino shuttle bus at an Inwood intersection Tuesday night, police and witnesses said.

The victim was crossing Broadway at 204th Street when she was his by a bus from the Empire City Casino in Yonkers about 8:15 p.m., officials and witnesses said.

The bus was turning right from 204th Street onto Broadway when it hit the woman, police and witnesses added.

Witnesses said they saw the unidentified woman stuck beneath the bus, but police said she was not trapped and was conscious and breathing at the time.

She was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the NYPD and FDNY said. There were no updates on her condition as of Wednesday morning, police added. 

The bus driver remained at the scene, and there were no charges as of Wednesday morning, police said.

Witnesses described a scary scene on Tuesday night.

Stephanie Dominguez was walking to her car at the time after leaving her job at a pharmacy near the accident scene.

“It was bad,” said Dominguez, adding that the victim was near the bus's front tires and that her upper legs appeared to be stuck. “I get in the car and I see that the lady was under the casino bus. They were trying to pull her out.”

Alexa-Marie Acevedo, whose apartment overlooks the accident scene, watched from her window after hearing the commotion.

“All of the firefighters that responded came with blocks of wood that were placed in front and behind the wheels. They had something else that seemed to jack up the van,” she said. “From the looks of what they were doing, the person was under the car.”

Empire City declined to comment on the incident and referred questions to Silver Star Limo, which operates the bus service.

A representative from Silver Star declined to comment, citing an ongoing investigation.
