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.
Any car accident might produce serious injury, but a drunk driving accident can be especially destructive. Drunk drivers may travel at high speeds, ignore traffic signals, drive on the wrong side of the road, and cause deadly collisions. Perhaps for that reason, Boston car owners may face charges if they intentionally give the keys to someone who is drunk -- even if they aren't in the car.
