She then jumped a curbed and slammed into someone at the greyhound bus station just before midnight.

The identity of the victim has not been released. Police took the driver to the hospital for multiple tests however; they don’t believe alcohol is a factor. The driver appears to have suffered a medical episode and lost control of the car.
