Earlier today, around 12:30 p.m., a University of Georgia East Campus Express bus hit a student riding her bike on East Campus Road.

Reporters on the scene witnessed surrounding students helping the injured female who sat on the sidewalk while waiting for paramedics and police officials.

After police officials and paramedics arrived, the injured student was taken to Athens Regional by ambulance. She has been released since the incident.

During the same time that the paramedics were helping the injured student, the University of Georgia police spoke to witnesses and the bus driver about what happened.

There is still no word on if the bus driver has been charged with any crime yet. The name of the student has not been released by authorities.

    Actually, the student was cited with failure to yield by UGA PD because she hit the side of the bus. The driver was not charged and was not at fault.

    It was the biker’s fault. They sent her to the hospital in an ambulance with her citation. She didn’t yield to the bus when her bike lane ended.
