My sympathies for the victim, but the blurb lacks sufficient detail to ascertain guilt.

Seems like for drivers "when in doubt do the Harold Holt"

How many innocent bus drivers flee the scene?

"How many innocent bus drivers flee the scene?"

This is standard operating procedure for bus drivers. As far as I know the bus company would rather negotiate compensation with the victim and/or relatives than involve a third party, I.e. the police. The second motivation for fleeing is a reasonable fear that friends of the victim or locals might assault the driver
This practice is NOT recommended for foreign drivers involved in an accident.
