    Where was it pointed out that he was driving too fast. Until someone from the scene of the accident says so,let’s not go there.

    No conclusions, simply a request that all accidents are treated with the severity they deserve. All accidents, the drivers get breathalysed, proper investigations are carried out, full vehicle safety examinations are carried out. Any recommendations for future safety can be implemented such as seats belt in buses., routine safety & maintenance checks so that, maybe, just maybe accidents can be limited & lives saved. Accidents will always happen, but their impact can be lessened with the proper investigations when they do happen.
