"rammed" (of a vehicle or vessel) Be driven violently into (something, typically another vehicle or vessel) in an attempt to stop or damage it.

this is a very descriptive word to use and very leading; irresponsible for this paper to use terms such as this. rear-ended or hit the back of the bus may be a better choice
