Bus Looks an indian vehicle. Unfortunately these indian vehicles seriously lacks safety features. Otherwise this accident should not cause such damage to the Bus. Most children must be with cut injuries because the Indian vehicles have sharp metal edges in its interior and Window glasses are not protective type.

As long as the authorities take a lackadaisical towards maintaining law and order, there will be incidents like this, and it will get worse unless roads are policed 24/7, and errant drivers are fined or sent to courts

Laws applicable to public transport should be revised to protect the passengers who travel by public transport and the rights of the third parties.
