A MAJOR emergency services operation is underway in Sydney’s CBD after a ute slammed into a glass bus shelter.
Emergency services rushed to Victoria Park at Broadway about 1.30pm this afternoon after receiving reports of a serious crash.
Three pedestrians who were waiting at the bus stop were injured in the smash, including an elderly man who is in a critical condition.

Another male pedestrian has been taken to North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition, while another was taken to Royal Prince Alfred with non-life-threatening leg injuries.
The driver of the ute, who was trapped in his car for a short time, has been taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for treatment to minor injuries and mandatory testing.
NSW police confirmed in a statement a short time ago that the incident is not being considered as deliberate.
Motorists are being urged to avoid the area as crews work to clear the scene.
