This is real bad! Just imagine if the bus was full of kids, cannot even imagine that. The lady and the lone kid were very very luck to get away with probably no bodily harm. There has to be accountability from the school as well in such situations...

A tyre burst by itself need not cause a roll over, however, abrasion with the median can cause a roll over and a tyre-burst. Quite often, driving really close to the median will cause the tyre to make contact with the grippy surface of the median wall and due to the momentum, the tyre will climb over. At some point, the side wall tear and this gets reported in the news as a tyre-burst that caused the accident.

When the driver cannot control the vehicle after a tyre burst, the consequences can be fatal. This has to do with the preparedness of the driver and of course the skill. Driving within one's ability and road conditions is still a skill that is alien to most.

Innovas are dime a dozen, so, what percentage of the vehicles sold end up in accidents will be a better metric than going by absolute numbers or media reports.

While I am not sure about this accident, but many times tyre burst happens after losing control and/or hitting something.

News about this accident.

Is Innova a high GC vehicle. Definitely not, I've had two Innova till date, and differential scraping or cross member below gearbox scraping was a regular occurrence. Infact low GC is the only reason I stopped buying Innova and shifted to Terrano and Ecosport.
Lastly whatever the cars GC, and whatever height the center of gravity is, it is for the drivers to understand that and stick to suitable speeds.

Very obvious statement above-
Every accident is driver's fault. Either one or more. Only exceptions are of course, mechanical faults and acts of God.

Am not sure what you mean, the school bus was T-boned, there was not much that the school bus could do apart from insist on passengers wearing a belt

1. Vehicle factors:
2. Road factors:
There is a third aspect, the Driving factor:
Most of these tyre bursts are as a result of the front right wheel hitting/slamming the divider as a result of driving on the right most lane for long periods/continuously very close to the divider - A very dangerous habit that leads to most of these tyre bursts and jumping over to the other side.

As soon as an overtaking is done, better go back to the left or middle lane and stay away from that divider.
