A 70-year-old California woman was seriously injured late Tuesday when she was struck by a bus in downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas police said at 10:45 p.m. a “private party bus” struck the pedestrian at the intersection of First Street and Ogden Avenue. The pedestrian, a resident of Camarillo, California, was walking south in a crosswalk on Ogden when the driver of a white Ford F-550 shuttle bus attempted to make a left turn from First onto Ogden and struck the woman, police said.

The pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries. She was hospitalized at University Medical Center in critical condition. The driver of the bus, a 45-year-old Las Vegas man, remained at the scene and did not show signs of impairment.

An earlier version of this story misstated the gender of the victim.
