Cowper Bus Crash anniversary

TODAY marks the 27th anniversary of one of the Clarence Valley's most devastating events, the Cowper Bus Crash.

It's a tragedy that has left a scar deep within our community's psyche. The Daily Examiner still regards October 20, 1989 as one of the darkest days it has had to face in its 157-year-old history of reporting.

Spare a moment today to remember the 21 lives lost and families left behind, the emergency workers and the medical teams who were on the frontline. Lest we forget.
