    Authorities have ticketed the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus driver who allegedly ran a red light last night before crashing into pedestrians and cars, leaving one person killed and eight others injured, including a child, according to the latest media reports. The part-time driver had been on the job for less than a year. Apparently he ran a red light at Michigan Avenue and East Lake Street, about 6 p.m. Chicago police reportedly ticketed the driver for failure to stop at a red light and failure to exercise due caution. The driver was taken to nearby Northwestern Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening head injuries. The 51-year-old mother of two adult children who died is being remembered with flowers and cards at the scene of the tragic incident. We all pray for her family.
