A motorhome struck a bicyclist in Seal Beach, a collision which threw the bicyclist under an Orange County Transportation Augency bus on Sunday, Sept. 13, according to Seal Beach Police Sgt. Steve Bowles.
He said it was an accident.
The accident, which apparently occurred around mid-day, took place in the northbound lane of Pacific Coast Highway, near the intersection of PCH and Balboa/12th Street.
According to the SBPD dispatch log, police received a report of a man under a bus at 12:09 p.m., Sept. 13.
The bus was parked and the bus driver was on a break at the time of the accident, according to Laura Scheper, community relations specialist for the Orange County Transportation Authority.
Bowles said the bicyclist probably sustained moderate injuries. Bowles said the bicyclist was transported to Long Beach Memorial Hospital.
Bowles said there was no evidence that anyone was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.
Bowles said that the bicyclist was leaving the Pavilions parking lot, trying to get around the parked bus, when the motorhome struck the bike rider.
