A woman staying at a local hotel was struck by a commuter bus near the Meadowlands Tuesday night.

The 36-year-old victim wasn't in a crosswalk when an NJ Transit bus hit her in the middle lane of Route 120 (Paterson Plank Road) outside the Holiday Inn Express in Carlstadt shortly after 7:30 p.m., Detective Sgt. John Cleary said.

She was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with serious and possibly life-threatening injuries, Cleary said.

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Fatal Accident Investigations Unit and NJ Transit police were notified. The Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification was summoned to collect evidence.
