The circumstances of this tragedy are still unclear, but it seems that the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing the bus to swerve to its death.At the scene of the accident, there was dismay and consternation. Emergency services were quickly dispatched to the scene and local authorities immediately mobilized to take care of the victims. But sadly, despite everyone’s efforts, 13 people lost their lives in this tragedy.The images posted on social media are shocking: the bus overturned on its side, debris strewn across the road, rescue workers working around the injured. It was a real human drama that played out last night on the national road number 1.Beyond the shock and sadness, this accident is yet another reminder of the urgent need to secure our roads and strengthen surveillance on our public transport. Road accidents are unfortunately common in our country, and it is time to take effective measures to prevent them.In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as all those who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy. We also hope that the authorities will shed light on the causes of this accident and take the necessary measures to prevent a recurrence of such a tragedy.The tragedy in Koungheul reminds us how important it is to remain vigilant on the road and to always respect the safety rules. This tragedy could have been avoided, and it is our duty to honour the memory of the victims by doing our utmost to avoid such accidents in the future
