BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A woman sustained serious injuries on a Palm Tran bus Monday afternoon in Boca Raton.

Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the woman was thrown within the bus when the bus driver hit the brakes hard on Federal Highway. The woman, according to our sources, fell to the floor of the bus with such force that she sustained a possibly paralyzing injury.

We are told that paramedics rushed the woman to Delray Medical Center and that she arrived without the ability to move the lower half of her body. She also apparently had the sensation of pain in her neck.

We do not know the identity of the woman at this time. It is unclear whether the woman was in a seat on the bus or whether the braking was above and beyond what is considered to be normal.

We are awaiting an official response from Boca Raton PD.
