Driver of the bus must have tried to give room to the car but unfortunately it may have skidded and taken of the bus from the edge of the road and fallen to precipice. Problem here is despite demarcation of both ways of single Road with white strips No one is resorting to the line.

Poor children. Dont know who to blame Aney. Most of the times these bus drivers drive like mad fellows. Even car drivers same same.
