Last Friday night, a TriMet bus operator had to make an extremely abrupt stop in order to avoid hitting someone on a bike. According to eyewitness accounts, the bike rider did not stop at a stop sign.
TriMet just released footage from the on-board camera. Mary Fetsch with TriMet media relations says the footage shows, “how close the bike was to the front of the bus.”
The stop was so abrupt that one passenger suffered injuries. According to TriMet, the passenger was transported to a local hospital. Fetsch says the operator was hired in February 2011 and that their name is being withheld while the incident remains under investigation.
