  • poor kids. that would be traumatic for the children and i hope that they can overcome that


  • Sad story – hope the children will be OK


  • Such a tragic accident. Notice there is basically no information re the cause of it.
    Another one where a driver was too impatient and tried to pass the bus at the wrong time / place ?? I have witnessed too many near accidents because of that sort of behaviour. I have seen incidents where cars have passed and practically taken the front bumper off the bus – still don’t know how the bus missed the car – I have also been a passenger in a truck and had that happen. No other close traffic coming but car driver wouldn ‘t wait 5-10 seconds. Truck driver didn’t even have time to put the clutch in, let alone change gear, slammed on the brakes and reckons he missed the car by no more than 4cm. Lucky he hadn’t got up to speed limit or he would have hit the car for sure. I hope the injured make a speedy recovery and counselling is also available.


  • So sad to hear of the driver,my thoughts are with the family.
