On Monday afternoon, a GUTS bus driver struck a cyclist as he was turning the corner at Reservoir Road. Several sources, including Nick Troiano (COL ’11) and the D.C. Fire and EMS department, reported the accident on Twitter just before 2:00 p.m.

University Spokesperson Andy Pino wrote in an e-mail that the cyclist was not seriously injured, and the GUTS bus driver was not at fault.

“The cyclist was not seriously injured and she admitted to being at fault in the incident,” he wrote. “The GUTS driver called for an ambulance to assure that she was not injured. A police report was taken, and the driver was not cited. EMTs checked out the cyclist and put a bandage on her knee.”
