Public transit bus hits another pedestrian in downtown Canton

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - It's been less than a month since a man was hit and killed by a transit authority bus in downtown Canton. Now a woman has been hit by another bus there.
Thea Cole, 44, of Carrollton, was taken to Aultman Hospital on Wednesday. Police said that she was in critical condition.
She was crossing a street Wednesday afternoon when she was hit by a Stark Area Regional Transit Authority bus. Police said she was in the crosswalk and had the right of way.
Another SARTA bus struck 70-year-old Lewis Polen on June 6. He died a day later.
Polen had just gotten off the bus and was crossing a street.
