A pensioner involved in a collision with a bus in Sheffield is now fighting for life.

The 82-year-old woman was struck by a single decker on Richmond Park Road, Handsworth, at 12.15pm on Monday.

She was initially taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from serious injuries but medics said her condition has now deteriorated and she is fighting for life.

Police officers investigating the circumstances of the collision want to trace the drivers and passengers of a dark coloured 4x4 type vehicle and a silver people carrier style vehicle in the area at the time.

Both vehicles were in front of the bus before the collision and were initially held up by a red traffic light at the junction with Handsworth Road.

The vehicles then turned right from Handsworth Road onto Richmond Park Road.

Officers also want to speak to a woman, possibly in her early 30s, who was walking down Richmond Park Road towards Handsworth, on the same side of the road as Asda, who may have witnessed the collision.

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 412 of November 10.
