"I was shocked when I heard the tragic news that the Company employees were involved in an Accident. My thoughts and sympathy are with the family of the deceased. He had worked for the Company for 8-9 years. I knew him very well and feel for members of his family some of whom also worked for the Company. He was well liked and valued member. The Company will assist his family in anyway we can. My primary concern at the present is also with all of those injured whilst travelling in the Coach and were involved in this tragic accident."
