A closer look
A closer look at the pole and bus

I took a couple of close-up picture of the accident that I blogged about in my previous post. The bus # 17 whose route is from Manu Auto-port through 4 Mile then Gordon Market decided to take a short cut and ended up hitting a pole along Waigani Drive, opposite the Mutual Rumana building.

Our typical stupidity took place soon after. The driver and his crew abandoned the vehicle and scrambled away from the crash. The onlookers looted the day’s takings and did not even consider the danger of the power pole falling.

But the most infuriating thing is that the repair cost for this pole will be passed on to consumers and tax payers.
