13 – year- old school girl sustained injuries as a result of an accident whereby she fell from a school bus as a result of a road traffic accident.
The child is said to be in critical condition.
It is said that she sustained a Child Head Injury and neck injury due to jumping from the fire exit at the back of the bus whilst the bus was still moving.
The child and the bus driver were the only passengers present at the time of the incident and the bus driver states that he was unable to stop her given that he was driving and did not realise she had got off until he heard the fire exit alarm.
CCTV footage from the incident is said to have been blank due to the machine running out of tape.
Investigations are still underway.
