Stuff is reporting that a woman, believed to be an Asian tourist in her 40s, has been taken to Rotorua Hospital in a critical condition after she was hit by a bus in the central city this afternoon.

The accident happened about 2.10pm at the intersection of Amohau and Tutanekai Streets.

The woman was in a critical condition, a St John ambulance northern communications spokesman said.

A person who was at the scene said he believed the woman suffered a serious head injury.
