The pedestrian is believed to have suffered back and pelvis injuries in the collision with the bus on the A41 in Chapel Ash, Wolverhampton.

Police and paramedics were called to the scene at around 4.20pm today.

Chapel Ash was closed at its junction with the city’s ring road, causing rush-hour traffic disruptions across the city.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a female pedestrian, believed to be in her 30s, who had been in collision with a bus.

“She was treated for leg, back and pelvis injuries and given pain relief on scene. She was carefully immobilised with the use of a spinal board and also had a pelvic splint applied.

“The woman was then taken on alert, to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, for further assessment.”

The road reopened at around 6.30pm but drivers were still being warned of traffic delays.
