GET says bus did not hit cyclist

Golden Empire Transit District disputed a preliminary California Highway Patrol report Wednesday that one of its buses hit a bicyclist at Gage and Flower streets.

The CHP on Wednesday afternoon posted a hit-and-run injury crash to its traffic-incident website with the entry "GET BUS VS BICYCLIST."

GET spokeswoman Gina Hayden told Eyewitness News that they reviewed eight cameras on the buses that went down that route, and none were involved in the crash. One bus passed the spot before the crash, and another didn't go by until after the crash, Hayden said.

Eyewitness News has placed a call to the CHP for more information.
