2 killed, at least 49 injured in KZN school bus accident
Two people have been killed and at least 49 others injured after a school bus collided with another vehicle in KwaMbonambi, KwaZulu-Natal, paramedic services said on Thursday.
"Information filtering from the scene indicated that the accident was between a school bus and a bakkie," the province's emergency medical services spokesperson Robert McKenzie said.
IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Dylan Meyrick said the head-on collision resulted in the bus going down an embankment while the Fortuner remained on the road.
The vehicle's two occupants died, while a child has been airlifted to a local hospital in critical condition.
The bus passengers did not sustain serious injuries, he said.
The scene has since been cleared.
