By Joseph George

An alert school bus driver averted a major accident yesterday after a careless truck driver suddenly changed lanes on a high speed highway in Dubai.

2The incident occurred on Tuesday morning when the school bus with about seven children and the nanny was on its way to the school in Academic City.

The transport co-ordinator at the school who spoke on condition of anonymity said a few students and the nanny sustained minor injuries, that is not considered serious, following the accident but added that the accident could have become major if the driver was not alert and if the kids had not worn seatbelts.

“Also our very strict 80km limit that we have set on all the school transport vehicles helped the driver control the vehicle,” he said. More info
