Oahu entertainer on bike hit by city bus

WAIPAHU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An Oahu entertainer is still recovering Tuesday night after being hit by a city bus last week.

Anjj Lee was riding her bicycle along Farrington Highway in Waipahu Wednesday night when she got hit.

"All I felt was this streak of pain on my right side. I didn't know what was going on. My bike was turning. I just saw this big huge thing pass by me and I was like, oh my God! It's the bus!" said Lee.

Lee thinks it was the bus' mirror that clipped her just east of Waipahu High School. She said she fell to the ground and rolled out of traffic.

"I was screaming in pain. I didn't know what was going on. I didn't know if I was alive or what," Lee said.

To make things worse, it's her strumming arm that's injured. She says her range of motion is slowly coming back.

"It could have ended a lot different. I was just lucky that I got clipped because even if I was just an inch over, and got the front of the bus, I would have been in the front and most people don't really survive that," she said.

Lee said she didn't have much room that night because rail construction narrowed the road. She says she doesn't feel safe using the alternate bike route behind Waipahu High School because it's dark and overgrown.

"There's no excuse for not having an alternate route, there really isn't. This is a school, Leeward Community College is a school. There should be an easy way between the two."

Oahu Transit Services says the bus operator is 55 years old with 21 years of service. OTS wouldn't release any other details as the investigation continues.
