A Rotorua boy is still in a serious condition in Auckland's Starship Hospital after being hit by a bus.
The 10-year-old hit the side of a CityRide bus on Ranolf St next to Rotorua's Amohau St skate park on Saturday as he crossed the road on a push scooter.
The driver reportedly heard a bump as the boy collided with the door of the bus.
The boy, who had been at the park with his older brother was taken to Rotorua Hospital's emergency department in a serious condition but was transferred to Starship Hospital where he is still in the intensive care unit.
The incident has prompted businesses in the area to speak out about traffic incidents surrounding the popular skate park.
One Pererika St business owner, who did not want to be identified, told The Daily Post he wanted signs put up warning people to slow down.
He said the skate park was a popular place for children, especially during the weekends and school holidays. He said he would regularly see about 50 children using the skate park.
The man said he saw Saturday's incident and said the boy had looked both ways before he crossed the road.
"He did look and then darted out and hit the bus," he said.
"The kids that use the skate part are usually pretty good. A lot of us who work around here do remind them they need to look both ways before they cross the road."
He said motorists were meant to stop at the intersection of Pererika St and Ranolf St, but they very rarely did.
"People need to actually stop and they should put some signs up telling people to slow down for children."
Police said they were investigating the incident but no further information has been released.
Meanwhile, Rotorua 6-year-old Hineraukura Fraser-King is still in a rehabilitation facility in Auckland.
Hineraukura was hit by a car on Sala St on May 5.
She was initially in Auckland's Starship Hospital but moved last month to Wilson Home, which is a rehab facility.
Hineraukura's family said she was making great progress. She can now eat without a feeding tube and her broken bones are healing.
It is still unclear how long she will remain in the rehab facility.
