I used to think that Train is the safest public transport as it has its own "track"!
Sigh:(

failed brakes do not cause it to move faster

if he was not speeding to begin with, it won't crash at such high speed

even if the brakes failed totally, the bus should slow down gradually due to friction of the tyres on the road, not speeding like what is seen on the video

if the accelerator has failed, the brake could stop it

if the brake has failed, the bus should roll to a stop if there was no speeding to begin if

don't think both the accelerator was jammed and the brake failed at the same time
