An eye witness ,who claimed to have escaped being hit by the bus ,said when the driver lost control, the vehicle wobbled for about 500 metres creating a loud noise as it moved.
“We were not sure of what went wrong, we just saw the bus moving towards us, but we were lucky that it hit a culvert and stopped.
According to him, the driver was foaming at the mouth as soon as he was brought out of the vehicle, and from all indications, he was suffering from epilepsy, and some people rushed him to hospital.
Several passersby were said to have sustained injuries and were rushed to different hospitals in the metropolis.
