Three people have been killed and at least 70 others injured in a bus accident in Chatsworth earlier this morning.
Authorities say the bus, carrying more than 70 people, lost control and rolled down an embankment off the M1 Highway.
Most of the injured, seven of whom were critical, were treated at the scene before being taken to nearby hospitals.
KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Service’s Robert Mckenzie says, “Paramedics from the Department of Health’s emergency medical services and other private services treated 70 patients at the scene of the crash. The exact cause of the crash is not known at this stage and will be investigated by police.”
