“When the patrol arrived at the intersection of Sint-Bernardsesteenweg and Generaal Armstrongweg, the bus was already on its side.
“The medical intervention plan has been declared. Most of the passengers were lightly injured but still taken to the hospital.
“A 15-year-old is so seriously injured that he is in critical condition. Unfortunately, all help came too late for the driver. He died on the spot.”
