  1. 1. Boterekwa is no more, the path simply needs to be destroyed and completely re-engineered and rebuilt.
    2. You have to be very sobber and extremely patient when driving through there nowadays because of point 1 above.
    3. Such accidents happen because of following too closely. Bus driver was most likely following too closely.

    1. I personally witnessed the accident. Actually the driver tried his best to see the souls in the bus. When he realized that his breaks were nolonger functional he tried to stop the bus by squeezing his front wheels against that barricade on his right of the road. Upon realizing that it failed to stop he was left with no option but to ram into the back of a stationary truck. . It’s unfortunate that the two got injured but kudoos to the experienced driver. Otherwise the worst blcould have happened.
