DeKalb County, GA — A cyclist is OK after being hit by a DeKalb County school bus.

DeKalb County Police are investigating the incident, which occurred around 4:30 p.m. on April 24.

“Officers responded to a vehicle [crash] at Glenwood Road and Glenmar Drive,” a spokesperson for the DeKalb County Police Department said. “When they arrived, they located a cyclist in the roadway along with a DeKalb School bus. The cyclist (a 64-year-old male) sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Initial information indicates the vehicle and cyclist were traveling eastbound on Glenwood Road at the time of the collision. Investigators with our Traffic Specialist Unit responded to the scene to further the investigation.”

DeKalb Police say the cause of the crash is still being determined.

A spokesperson for DeKalb County Schools said the cyclist was “alert and responding to first responders as he was being treated on-scene” before being sent to the hospital. No students were on the bus at the time of the incident.
