Seen the impact at accident location and the satellite photo of the road, at 02:30 PM, it was a criminal way of driving that cause this accident.
We can't say which party is quilty.
Was the bus driver checked on drugs and alcohol?

Actually a very good idea of Ed Sanders to have a dash cam in busses, the costs of such can not block installation by law.
And install a anti alcohol device lock. 
The driver has to blow it first, if he has consumed alcohol, the bus will not start.

Ed Saunders, not only that but the RTP have no knowledge/ability on how to investigate an accident scene, they simply take notes, and accept what they are told. They should watch an Australian TV series, Crash Scene Investigators,they would soon know how much they don't know.

Chalk up another one, and the police will be at a loss since there are no CCTVs in the area.  All buses need dash cams and black boxes.
