FISHERS, Ind. - A pedestrian was seriously injured by a school bus in Fishers Saturday morning shortly before the start of the Geist Mini Marathon.
Just after 6 a.m., Fishers police responded to a report of a collision between a school bus and a pedestrian on the 11700 block of Olio Road.
The area was the staging ground for this year's running of the Geist Mini Marathon, which was about to begin.
Police said the bus was attempting to turn northbound onto Olio Road from a shopping center off 116th Street when it collided with the pedestrian, who was running northbound in the crosswalk.
The pedestrian, 34-year-old Erin Harris, of Fishers, was taken to IU Saxony Hospital in Fishers and then Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where she was listed in critical condition.
The driver of the bus, David McCollum, 69, was not injured. Police said it does not appear that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Harris was participating in the Mini Marathon.
