    Most number of accidents happens through private buses. Per year may be couple of hundreds. Private bus accidents occur due to racing to get couple of bucks.

    be fair Friday, 12 July 2013 02:51 AM

    hear this: 20 insurance companies, avg of 30 accidents reported to them, thats 600/day
    18,000 accidents a month, 219,000 a year. If you take an avg of Rs 25,000 for the accident repair, total cost Rs. 5,475,000,000. What an economic cost/loss......???????
    forget about accounting the loss of life.

    be fair Friday, 12 July 2013 02:57 AM

    with Rs.5,475,000,000 the good things we can do:
    Develop/enhance few rural hospitals, schools,
    Help some needy people
    or get 42 Rolls Royce cars for the CHOGM 2013 :)

    I think you have got your facts wrong..kotaleeya is beyond Polonnaruwa on Batticaloa road. so what was that bus doing there if it was heading to Polonnaruwa from Colombo?

    What a poor quality accident. The death toll is seriously not enough. Wish it was a whole bus load of school children and all of them died....ha ha only then will our ministers wake up.
