Dilara Poyraz, one of the students who was slightly injured, stated that she was sleeping in the back of the bus when the accident happened.

A statement from the Konya Governorate said that the bus had been rented by parents to carry the students to the Cihanbeyli Medical Vocational High School.
The accident happened due to ice on the road, the statement elaborated.
