it was a field trip to Western Australia's south west in the Fitzgerald national park, which is essentially in the middle of nowhere, where the
minibus that was carrying me and 6 others rolled over after losing control on the dirt road that stretches the length of the park (about 100+
kilometers). It was a geology field trip and we were on the way to West Mt Barren when the bus swerved after hitting a bump and subsequently a ditch,
causing the steering to lock. It first swerved right, then the driver attempted to regain control by turning left, causing the bus to slide off the
left side of the road, into the bush and to roll over 3/4 of a circle.
Luckily, no one was injured, even since only 2 were warring seat belts, that being the driver and front passenger.
This happened Friday afternoon, around 1:30pm. Thankfully the nearby town (can't remember the name) came into action quite quick and the services
were arriving 20+ minutes later. I am rather achy and I have a camera shaped bruise on my right knee but apart from that there aren’t any injuries.
The worst was some winding and glass cuts.
I guess it’s just one of those things that you can never expect to happen, ever.
The thing I don’t want to do now, though, is go back to school again...I’d better get an extension on my English assignment
