Cyclist, bus collide in Burlington

From Burlington Free Press

A cyclist was injured when he collided with a Mountain Transit bus Tuesday morning at the intersection of Pearl and Prospect streets in Burlington, according to police.
Jason Cushner, 42, of Colchester was riding on Pearl Street, crossing Prospect Street in the crosswalk at about 6:41 a.m. Tuesday when he collided with a bus, driven by 49-year-old David Marler, as the vehicle turned onto Prospect Street, according to Deputy Police Chief Andi Higbee.
“It looks like the cyclist might have been in the blind spot,” Higbee said.
Cushner was transported to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, treated and discharged.
As of Tuesday afternoon, police had not issued any traffic tickets or citations related to the crash, Higbee said.
“It remains under investigation,” he said.
Correction: A previous version of this story misidentified the transit company, due to an error in a statement made by police.
