    Thank God, no one was injured. This type of accident, if it can be termed an accident, is due to the negligence of the maintenance of vehicles being at the bus depots and the negligence of the driver, as well.

    All these buses are Indian. We should be buying buses and later producing them under licence in Sri Lanka from countries like China, South Korea, or Japan.

    typical SLTB negligence, driver conductor, depot manager, chief mechanic of the depot are responsible, I thought they are supposed to do checks daily before driving
