Eyewitnesses said the bus hit two vehicles on the Palampur-Hamirpur national highway and turned turtle. Ten students sustained injuries. Five students were taken to the Civil Hospital, Palampur, while the rest were sent home. The bus and two other vehicles were damaged. The driver fled the spot. No arrests have been made so far.

Schoolchildren told mediapersons that the bus was being driven rashly by the driver, which led to the accident. Kangra SP Sanjiv Gandhi said the matter was under probe and if it was proved that the driver was drunk and driving rashly, strict action would be taken against him. He said it was a serious matter and the police would not spare anybody.

DSP Vikas Dhiman said a major tragedy was averted as the driver applied brakes on time otherwise there could have been heavy causalities. He said a case under Section 304-A had been registered against three persons for negligent driving.
