It seems like the roadblock was mounted on a blind spot, with the bus driver also attempting maneuvers at a blind spot or rise.

It would seem Police are hiding something connected with this accident. In their statement Police does not reveal that they manning a roadblock and that were also involved in the road accident as the driver veered off the road when he failed to overtake another vehicle at the roadblock. It could mean that the roadblock was poorly cited.

the driver lost control after overtaking another vehicle and the bus veered off the road and landed on its left side after dragging on the tarmac do some metres

as clear as it is someone want to blame blind curves or rises, police road block citing nei nei for what

the driver failed to drive properly only and in this context - negligently drove the bus causing an accident and and death of a passenger
