Just so sad ...no blame game poor innocent people died .
Very sorry for the kids and their families. May God give their families courage during this unfortunate time.
No regards for life, No regards for kids, no regards for rules. This is India for you. Though I love my India, but I hate the attitude of people towards law and towards precious lives.

Looks like either the driver fell a sleep or drunk.

Very sad to know the tragic accident in Karnataka in which 25 bus passengers killed. Just because of human error such valuable lives are lost.
These types of accidents are taking place too often.Driver training must be very vigorous especially for the drivers driving heavy vehicles in our country.
