A 93-year-old woman was hospitalized initially in critical condition after she was struck by a Loyola University shuttle bus on the North Side this morning, officials said.
The woman was taken to Advocate Illinois Medical Center after she was struck by a Loyola University shuttle bus, said Larry Langford, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department. The woman improved to serious but stable condition later in the day, police said. Among her injuries, she suffered a broken nose.
The woman was walking north along Sheridan when the bus, which had been going south on Sheridan, made a left turn onto Bryn Mawr Avenue to head east and struck the woman, according to police.
The driver of the bus was issued a ticket for not yielding the right-of-way to a pedestrian, police said.
The bus was operated by a private company and was taking about 60 students between its Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses when the accident happened, said Maeve Kiley, a Loyola University spokeswoman. No students were injured.
