SPRINGFIELD (CBS) – Newly released video shows a bus rolling out of control in Springfield.

MassLive.com recently obtained footage of the November incident.

The news outlet reported Tuesday that the driver got out of the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority bus to restart its electrical system, but the parking brake wasn’t set and the bus rolled away.

It barely missed three teenagers on the corner and knocked over a light pole before being stopped by sidewalk barriers.

The driver told police a supervisor told him to reset the system but the company that makes the buses says there’s no procedure where that should happen.

There were 20 people on the bus but no one was seriously hurt.
