I did not wait for light to turn red

My boss is spending me for a week after I was in a minor traffic accident. It was a regularly busy Friday & I was driving all over the town to complete Heating & A/C repair jobs. I drove all the way to the beach in the afternoon for an Heating & A/C tune-up. I drove to the other side of town at supper time so I could help one of my co-workers with a air duct replacement job, however we needed more sheet metal for the air duct replacement job, so I provided to drive back to the shop, then on my way back to the job site, I ran a yellow light. The light was red when I looked up, however it was yellow when the car smashed into the side of my labor truck. The side of my truck was smashed & the front of the other car was banged up badly. When the police came to the accident, I ended up with a ticket for running the yellow light. I was cited at fault for the accident; My boss brought me into the office the next day to give me suspension papers, then she told me that I need to beginning driving more safely. She told me that I should take the week to think about my job. I did not expect my boss to suspend me, despite the fact that I found out that the corporate office made the demand. The lady that I hit with the labor truck filed a lawsuit against the corporation more than one minutes after the accident, since the police found me at fault, the corporation was going to have to spend money the lady injures.
