    I don’t know, the driver might taken alcohol b4 starting the journey, if he did that, alcohol could made him loose concentration, feel relax too much and brought sleep, which caused the accident. I think the road safety should have equipment for testing any driver who has taken alcohol when going 4 journey, if they discover alcohol in his blood, such driver shd be deprived and a responsible one take his place.
