    In my opinion, a professional driver with a careless driving offense is a bit like a teacher with a child abuse rap. I don't believe either should be working in their chosen field after such an offense.

    So much money is talked on news that has already be raised by donations that some GREEDY SCUMBAGS are coming out of the woodwork to take advantage WTF

    video from 4.16 min onwards is in English.

    A woman suspected of committing an online scam in relation to the fatal traffic accident that happened in Taipo on last Saturday was arrested today (2018-02-13). Superintendent Mohammed Swalikh of the Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau (CSTCB) is giving a briefing to the media

    This is correct (not that the difference necessarily matters that much). Was by there today. Still a bunch of police tape and a bunch of papers left there... but overall not *that* much trace of the crash.

    Police said the bus driver, 60, claimed he lost control of the vehicle because he tried to avoid hitting a bird.

    The bus kept going straight, the brake lights did go one but he kept going straight, maybe the driver didnt press the brakes hard enough but saying avoiding to hit a bird?? dont most people say they crashed trying to avoid some sort of Mysterious animal LOL

    You are right, that excuse doesn't pass the smell test.

    There was a video doing the rounds last year, filmed from a dashboard cam where the driver swerved to avoid a woman on the road. But it turned out to be a ghost.

    I just assumed it was fake since it was on Facebook and the description was in Chinese so i couldn't be bothered to translate.
