91-yr-old struck by bus expected to make full recovery

A 91-year-old Castlegar man was struck by a transit bus yesterday afternoon and sent to hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Castlegar RCMP Cpl. Jason Olney says the call came in at 5:09 p.m. on Tuesday, and police attended the intersection of 6 Street and 7 Avenue.

Olney says the cause of the incident is still under investigation, and the investigation may be aided by closed-curcuit cameras (some buses have them, and it's uncertain yet whether this particular bus does).
