Pedestrian hit by shuttle bus

Steamboat Pilot & Today

— A man received injuries not thought to be life threatening after being hit by a shuttle Tuesday.

The incident occurred about 7:50 p.m., after a Steamboat Springs Transit bus stopped at a bus stop to let passengers off at Montview Lane and Mount Werner Road.

Police Commander Jerry Stabile said a 20-year-old man got off the bus and crossed in front of the vehicle to reach Mount Werner Road.

He was struck by a shuttle traveling the same direction as the bus.

The man's name was not available Wednesday. He was taken to Yampa Valley Medical Center with lower extremity injuries.

Police reviewed video footage from the bus of the incident. Stabile described it as frightening.

Steamboat Transit advises passengers not to cross in front of busses.

Police do not believe the bus or shuttle driver were at fault.
