As the bus driver made a right turn from Boardman-Canfield Road, the rear end of the bus struck the vehicle of Brittany Newton, of Boardman-Canfield Road, according to the crash report. Newton suffered injuries to her neck and back as well as mental anguish, according to the lawsuit, which claims negligence by the bus driver.
