Paratransit bus damaged in 3-car collision

REGINA, Saskatchewan — A paratransit bus was damaged in a collision earlier this month when a vehicle drove through a red light and struck it. The bus was pushed into another vehicle in the next lane, reported the Regina Leader-Post.

Officials said they were able to transfer all of the passengers to a different bus to carry them to their destinations. The passenger side door and lift were still functional, but the bus itself was not drivable. To read the full story, click here.

    glad no one was hurt but just a question. when it is a bus being hit the "drove or Blew thru a red light" to hit the bus. but if it is a rail vehicile the rail vehicle is always reported as "hitting the car" even if the car blew thru a crossing gate and hit the side of the light rail vehicle. seems a perception problem here???
