A resident of Sitni Gornji recounts a harrowing incident where a school minibus landed in their yard with five children inside. The driver managed to get the children out unharmed and they were taken to a hospital in Split with only minor injuries. However, the residents are expressing their outrage at the authorities’ negligence in maintaining the roads and making them safer for traffic.
The resident also sympathizes with the driver, who was also injured in the accident, and points out that the road was in poor condition due to the rain. The lack of safety measures such as a fence or bumper on the road was highlighted as a significant factor in the accident.
The incident has left the residents shaken, with one local describing the road as “really ugly” and expressing frustration at the lack of attention given to their community by the authorities. Despite the traumatic experience, they are grateful that everyone involved escaped without serious injuries.
