found children, several of them who were ejected from the vehicle and believed

children. Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do for two of the
children. They were declared dead.

critical injuries. Others sustained injuries ranging from minor to serious. The driver of the vehicle
sustained minor injuries. They were all treated and transported to various
hospitals." Bodasing said.
