In the message, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan expressed his great sadness upon coming to know of the accident and extended his condolences to the family members of the victims involved and hoped that they would be patient, and also prayed that the souls of the victims would be blessed and placed with the pious.

Following the incident, His Majesty commanded the Ministries concerned including the Prime Minister's Office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports, other Ministries as well as the relevant authorities in His Majesty's Government to play their roles in assisting the victims involved. In this regard, His Majesty issued a command for Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Laila Setia Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Abdul Rahman bin Haji Ibrahim, the Minister of Finance Two (II) in the Prime Minister's Office, and Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Pekerma Laila Diraja Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Hazair bin Haji Abdullah, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports who is currently also the acting Minister of Health as well as the Permanent Secretaries from the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Commander of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces to go to Sabah, Malaysia in order to make all necessary arrangements to resolve this matter. 

His Majesty also issued a command for all facilities including the costs of medical treatment for the injured and the transportation of the bodies of the victims back to Brunei Darussalam by aircraft to be borne by His Majesty's Government. 

A chartered bus carrying a group of Bruneians on holiday was involved in an accident in Sabah. According to a report by a Malaysian newspaper, New Straits Times, the accident occurred at the Ranau-Tamparuli Road near Kampung Kaporingan. 

The bus was travelling from Tawau towards Kota Kinabalu rolled twice on the road after the driver lost control of the vehicle, grazed a tourist bus in the opposite direction before coming to a stop about 30 metres away, when it crashed into a tree by the roadside. The group arrived in Kota Kinabalu last Friday and travelled to Tawau where they also spent the night yesterday. They were on their way back to Kota Kinabalu to spend another night before resuming their return journey to Brunei Darussalam today. RTB is currently updating information on the incident.

Whilst this also came into my attention on the sports page. 'Crocs' defeat 'Rhinos' 1-0 in a highly-anticipated pre-season friendly. I do miss footballing travel! When Sarawak meet Sabah, it was a classic as it was Selangor against Singapore!
