  1. a who a dis reportah! one Headlamp at front & BACK? what about the headlight of the minibus...didn't highlight that big object in front? It sounds to me that the bus turned the corner behind the truck at a very high speed which should not have been- rule or no rule! Sadly lives were lost my condolences to the families.
