11 passengers reported injured


Victim identified as Rutland resident Nancy Woods

NORTH BROOKFIELD, Mass. — A bus driver helping her lone passenger disembark from the vehicle was killed when the vehicle started to move.

Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said Nancy Woods, 46, of Rutland, stopped her bus near Chestnut and Maple streets around 3 p.m. and was helping her passenger get off of the back of the bus when it started to move forward.

Witnesses said Woods ran around to the driver’s side door and reached inside, but the bus hit her and continued to roll down Chestnut Street.

The bus, which was described as the size of a large van, continued to roll until it hit a garage on Maple Street.

The passenger remained in the van and suffered minor injuries.

The investigation is continuing.

Today I saw two different MBTA buses
at two different times
Going in two different directions
They had their employer name in common
Along with the facts that they were speeding and rushing through a yellow to red light
Then I saw a speeding school bus
So now is it a must that all buses of any kind have to speed
I thought about how it must have felt
Felt to be a passenger on a speeding bus that didn’t care about my life
Didn’t care about just how easy it would have been to take the life of everyone on the bus
And maybe the lives of innocent bystanders on foot or in cars
Why does anyone carrying passengers think it’s OK to speed
Is time so much more important than life
I know that keeping schedules are important but not more important than the safety of those you transport
I wish for not having to fear riding on buses
But I do fear riding on buses
I’m almost certain I won’t ride a bus again anytime soon

This poem was written after witnessing three speeding buses today. It scares me to think of how many lives are put at risk every day due to careless driving.
