A tour bus struck a pedestrian, who suffered a severe leg injury, in La Jolla Saturday, June 7, San Diego police said.

The 37-year-old bus driver was eastbound on Avenida de la Playa and started making a left turn onto Camino del Sol about 4:50 p.m., Officer David Stafford said.

The bus hit a 47-year-old woman who had stepped into the street from the west side. She suffered a major leg injury and was taken to a hospital.

Stafford said it appears the accident was the fault of the pedestrian, who was walking with a companion. An investigation was continuing.
