Sad but true. If you check the video in the above post, you can see that the Q-20 was turning East on to Northern when the Dahlia bus came flying through the red light at Main and clipped the rear part of the Q-20 causing it to spin out.

Scary sight for anyone let alone those who have been involved in an accident.

Can't figure out why he didn't stop. One report said he came off the bridge at a high rate of speed, but he had to cross Prince St before getting to Main.
