A pedestrian has been seriously injured after being hit by a bus in central Wellington.
Police confirmed the collision happened at 11.30am on Manners Street - between Willis Street and Victoria Street.
The bus was travelling towards Kingston.
Security guard Sean Otta works on Manners Street and was on the road a couple of minutes after the incident.
"I came outside, and I'd seen the pedestrian lying [in] the gutter, [near] the kebab shop and the barber," he said.
"They were facing towards the gutter, and the bus was back a bit further. When I first came out there was just an ambulance, then police officers started showing up.
"Usually around 11.30am the road just gets busier and busier with pedestrians - it was pretty full on."
Police closed the road while investigating the incident, but it has since reopened.
Senior Sergeant Matthew Morris said he did not have full details but the pedestrian was in a serious condition in hospital.
