8:20 pm on 29 January 2014

A man has been injured after being hit by a bus in central Wellington.

Witness Joyce Ralph says she heard a scream and turned to see a man lying on the ground in Manners Street about 5.30pm on Wednesday.

Ms Ralph said he then got up and walked into an ambulance about 15 minutes later.

Police confirmed that his injuries were minor.

The incident follows a series of accidents involving pedestrians and buses since the Wellington City Council changed routes through the central city several years ago.
