In fact, according to the LAPD, Susanna Schick simply "fell down on her bicycle."
She says the driver and Schick "exchanged words" according to Beatty, and once the traffic signal changed, the car continued to follow Schick down Spring.
Beatty says the driver struck Schick just past Fourth Street, which is where the cyclist next remembers regaining consciousness while face-down on the pavement.
But two police officers who witnessed the incident report seeing Schick continue on her bicycle for another block or two until the car turned right and she wobbled and fell over, tumbling off the bike.
The same officers called an ambulance and later returned Schick's bike to her house.
Schick's injuries are not in dispute.
She suffered a broken collarbone, six broken ribs and three breaks in her pelvis.
