Bus company director hit by bus
Fri, 20 Jul 2012 7:20a.m.
A man who suffered serious injuries when he was hit by a bus in central Wellington on Thursday is a director of the company that runs the city's bus network.
Tim Brown suffered severe head injuries and a collapsed lung after being hit by a bus on Willis Street in the central city about 1pm.
He is a director of NZ Bus, and a member of the management team at Infratil, which owns NZ Bus, Fairfax reports.
Police said it appeared Mr Brown was struck while crossing the street, near Mercer Street.
A witness said Mr Brown was run over by two of the bus's wheels, and was dragged from under the bus by bystanders, who gave him CPR.
The crash was one of at least 10 accidents involving buses and pedestrians since bus routes through the central city were changed two years ago.
