SALT LAKE CITY -- A woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition after being hit by a UTA bus. Officers are investigating who was at fault.

It was a scary scene.

"Initially upon arrival she was unconscious. They said she regained consciousness when they were getting her into the ambulance,"said Mark Bednarik with the Salt Lake City Fire Department.

The woman is in her 20s. She was crossing the street at 300 West and 300 South just after 11 a.m. when she was hit by the bus. It's not known yet if she was in a crosswalk or who is at fault.

Bednarik says UTA officials are combing over the site as well.

"I know from past experiences they do a full investigation on their end as well, but Salt Lake City Police Department will do the actual investigation," Bednarik said.

He could not say if anyone in addition to the driver was on the bus at the time of the accident.

The investigation shut down northbound lanes on 300 West near Pioneer Park for quite a while during the middle of the day. The UTA bus was stopped crookedly across two lanes of the road; an orange cone marked where its front corner touched the curb.
