“We are waiting for the families to come to identify the dead bodies,” he added.

One of the survivors of the crash, Sherrif Sadique, who was in the metro mass bus, said the driver was speeding.

“When we left the station, it looked like the driver was under pressure, and he was speeding. He was speeding to the extent that passengers were complaining to him, but he continued speeding and was even overtaking,” he recounted to Citi News.
