EMERYVILLE -- A bicyclist who collided with an AC Transit bus Tuesday night was hospitalized with severe head injuries, police said.
Officers responded to the crash just after 8 p.m. at 45th Street and San Pablo Avenue, near the Emeryville Senior Center and the Pixar Animation Studios.
The cyclist, a 31-year-old woman, was rushed to a nearby hospital and stabilized, but was not yet able to talk Wednesday afternoon, police Sgt. Mike Allen said. It was not clear whether she'd been wearing a helmet.
Police were still investigating Wednesday afternoon how the collision happened, Allen said.
There were no passengers on the bus and the bus driver was not injured, police said. However, the driver "was pretty distraught" after the collision and another driver was brought in to take the bus back to a nearby AC Transit yard, Allen said.
