This was indeed a drastic event that took so many lives together.
This drastic incident happened in the city of Arusha in Tanzania’s northern Karatu District, on the edge of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. According to CNN reports,”The place where it happened is a hill, with a steep slope, and it was raining when the accident happened. We don’t know if the driver was new or if there was a mechanical defect,” Aruba Police Commander Charles Mkumbo said.
Two teachers and the bus driver died on the spot. Two of the students survived but are critically injured. These students were between 12-13 years of age and were on their way to another school to take an exam.
