A dangerous situation just south of Boston could have been much worse when a negligent truck driver ran a red light and hit a Brockton city bus. The truck accident, which sent two people to the hospital, was allegedly caused by an inattentive truck driver who was looking at paperwork while driving and who failed to stop at a red traffic light. The truck driver's negligence caused his tractor trailer to rear-end the city bus and to throw the bus off the road and into the yard of a residential property.

But according to authorities in Boston, that last scenario is exactly what led to serious injuries for a Mansfield woman.
