A 77-year-old woman was critically injured Monday morning when she was hit by a city bus in Nuuanu, police said.

The woman was crossing Nuuanu Avenue at North Kukui Street near Chinatown about 8:05 a.m. Monday when the bus struck her. She was in a marked crosswalk but appeared to be crossing against a red light, police said.
Police closed the middle and right mauka-bound lanes on Nuuanu Avenue near Kukui Street while the accident was investigated.
