5 of 42 kids on excursion, 4 others killed in Palakkad road accident

The Baselious school's tourist bus going at high speed, reportedly at 97 kmph, carrying 42 students for Ooty in an excursion, rammed the slowing KSRTC bus, running ahead in the same direction, from behind while overtaking a car at Vadakkancherry in Palakkad and fell into a roadside swamp, at 11:30 pm, on Wednesday night. The absconding tourist bus driver was nabbed Thursday evening.

PALAKKAD, Oct 6: Nine people, including five schoolchildren were killed and 40 injured, 12 of them critically, in a terrible bus accident in Kerala’s Vadakkancherry in Palakkad district in the late hours of Wednesday.

The children belonging to Class 10, 11 and 12 were travelling from their Baselious School in Mulanthuruthy in Ernakulam district to Ooty, a tourist destination of Tamil Nadu, on a school excursion trip when the tourist bus they were in collided with a Kerala State Road Transport Corporation bus.

The absconding tourist bus driver Jomon was apprehended in Kollam on Thursday afternoon. The bus belongs to a Kottayam native.

There were 42 students and five teachers and two bus staff on board. The KSRTC bus, packed with 49 passengers, coming from Kottarakkara, was heading for Coimbatore, in the same direction. The school bus going at high speed reportedly at 97 kmph, hit the slowing KSRTC bus from behind while overtaking a car and fell into roadside swamp, at 11:30 pm.

A surviving student told 'Manorama News' that the bus was running at 80 kmph from the very beginning and that when pointed out it was too high for night driving, a bus staff ignored their concern.
