The cyclist was taken to hospital after the crash, while the star took the bike to a shop for repairs.
The actor spoke to a group of police officers who asked for more details about the accident.
Arnold did not appear to be at fault for the incident, law enforcement sources told TMZ at the time.
It was alleged that the woman made a quick left turn in front of Arnold’s car before he could brake and that he was not going fast at all.
An investigation into the accident was launched, although it was reportedly determined that the former California governor could have done nothing to avoid being hit.
Schwarzenegger was previously involved in a multi-car accident that occurred in Brentwood last January.
