OKLAHOMA CITY -

The victim of a hit-and-run between a motorcycle and a bus says police have a suspect.

News 9 first aired the surveillance video of the wreck at NW 41st Street and Classen Blvd. in Oklahoma City earlier this week.

The wreck forced a man off his motorcycle and sent him to the hospital. He says what he thought was church bus was actually a Salvation Army meals on wheels bus. The driver of that bus went to police after News 9 aired the surveillance video Tuesday night.

The video shows the bus pulling out in front of oncoming traffic causing a motorcycle to hit the side of the bus. Then, the bus continued on, making the accident a hit-and-run.

Police tell the victim that the bus driver claims she did not know there was an accident and thought she had just hit a curb. Police apparently believe the suspect because the victim says officers have encouraged him not to file a complaint against the bus driver.

"I hit it at 40 miles-per-hour," victim Jeff Stokes said. "How can you miss that?"

The speed limit on Classen Blvd. in the area of the accident is 40 mph. Stokes says an insurance claim was filed.

Police would not comment on this case as of late Thursday. The driver of the bus is expected to face a failure to yield citation.
