    How police jumping to conclusion so quick? An accident is caused by either one of the 3 things failing, Driver error, Mechanical error, or environmental error. How police eliminate mechanical and environmental without giving proper investigation? This is yahapalyana swift decision without brain.

    This has nothing to do with Yahapalanaya and Public - you are jumping to conclusions. May be the driver who survived admitted his falling asleep which very common for long distance driving at night for pilgrimages, weddings, funerals etc.
