Kitsap Transit has settled a lawsuit with a woman who was hit by a bus while riding her bicycle near Poulsbo.
The Kitsap Sun reports the Washington State Transit Insurance Pool, of which Kitsap Transit is a member, settled with Andrea Opalenik for $2.75 million.
Court documents say Opalenik was riding north on State Route 305 in May 2014 when she was struck by a Kitsap Transit bus driving in the same direction.
The lawsuit alleges as a result of the driver failing to maintain a proper lookout and yield the right of way, Opalenik sustained injuries including neurological impairment.
