    New roads, no speed limit, no law enforcement, selfish drivers. Unless we have someone who needs emergency medical attention, where are we rushing too?
    Until these are addressed……………just saying…….

    Very sad news especially if someone lost a leg. What pain and suffering. I still wish them to recover in time.
    What could have caused this accident, another one?

    From reports by people who were on the scene shortly after it appears that one woman lost a leg. Others seriously injured were transported to hodpital by ambulance.
    Woman who lost leg was stuck in the bus for some time.
    It will be very interesting to see how many road users get killed or injured by the solid blocks of concrete being placed all along the roads for the solar lights.
    These should be low and posts set up with small enough anchor bolts which burst during a collision with a vehicle.
    They are Deathtraps as they are!

      Valid point. May I suggest that metal guard rails are put in front of the lampposts, I know that people should take care but accident do happen and if we can mitigate their effects we should do so.

    Bus drivers again and again. They are to careless/reckless with people onboard. Over taking with full speed when they should not. Refueling in gas station with passangers on board the Bus.
