NEWS: DART Paratransit Driver Causes 5 Car Freeway Pile-Up

DALLAS, TEXAS - July 5, 2012 - Newly released surveillance footage from a Dallas, Texas freeway on June 29, 2012 shows a DART paratransit bus running into the back of a line of cars on an off-ramp form the North Texas Tollway. The bus does not appear to make any attempt to stop before impact. Preliminary investigation identifies "driver inattention" as the probable cause of the accident. Two people were injured. DART has placed the 52 year old driver on paid administrative leave.
