But according to the driver, the swerving the heap of sand only became necessary because he initially had given way to a speeding Sprinter Bus which had engaged in a 'wrong overtaking'.

Narrating the incident from his hospital bed, he said the Sprinter after engaging in the dangerous overtaking 'gave him [Ebony's driver] light" which was an indication for him to give way.

After swerving for the Sprinter to pass, Ebony's driver said, he realised there was a heap of sand which he also tried to swerve.
