18 people in a 10 seater vehicle may well be the reason for the accident. Th drivers of overloaded passenger vehicles should be severely penalised.

Wonder why there were only 18 people in the bus, I'm sure there was still space for a lot more. These idiots have absolutely no regard for any rules or regulations, nor do they have any common sense. Africa and its fools.
