My condolences to the bereaved father. Appears that the cause of the accident as been ascertained, why arrest the bus driver ? Some of these new riders are really irresponsible and break every imaginable law and rule, considering the age of the minor child it presumed that there was no helmet and or safety for measures adopted, very irresponsible.
