At least 10 people have been killed in a tragic bus accident on the N3 near the Bergville offramp in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday.
KZN EMS spokesperson Robert McKenzie said a bus has crashed off the highway and into the bush.
“There are reports of multiple fatalities and injuries. EMS are on scene treating patients with additional help on the way,” he said.
Netcare911 said reports from the scene indicate that the bus was travelling in a north bound direction when the driver lost control.
The bus crashed through the barrier into the south bound lane, rolling several times, and ejecting some occupants in the process.
On arrival of emergency services, Netcare911 said at least fifty people were found to have suffered injuries ranging from moderate to serious.
Rescue workers are busy using jaws of life to lift the wreckage as there are still people trapped underneath the bus. It is expected that the death toll could rise as some of the injuries are extensive.
