A 27-year-old woman is in critical condition after an SUV slammed into her at a Bronx bus stop Sunday morning, investigators said.

Witnesses said the driver was trying to make a right onto White Plains Road off the Cross Bronx Expressway when he apparently lost control.

Both the woman and the driver were taken to Jacobi Medical Center. The driver is in stable condition, police said.
