Two people have died and 18 others injured after a passenger bus and a bakkie collided head-on on the R714, near Bethlehem in the Free State.
Netcare 911 Chris Botha says paramedics arrived at the scene to find the two occupants of the bakkie still trapped in their vehicle.
“Eighteen passengers from the bus sustained minor injuries and after medics stabilized them on scene, they were transported to various hospitals in the area for the care that they required.
“Exact details to the cause of the accident are still speculative and remain a subject for police investigation,” said Botha.
