27 hurt in N1 bus crash

2012-04-06 07:09

Twenty-seven people were injured when a bus overturned on the N1 highway outside Polokwane, Limpopo, in the early hours of this morning.

Limpopo roads and transport department spokesperson Joshua Kwapa said the touring bus was on its way to neighbouring Zimbabwe when the accident happened.

“The bus driver had fallen asleep and the bus hit the cement barrier and overturned. There were no fatalities and people were treated on the scene.”

Kwapa said more than 7 000 cars entered Limpopo through the Kranzkop Plaza toll gate from midnight to 6am today.

“People are impatient because of the congestion and try to make up for lost time but we ask that people should exercise patience and change their behaviour on the roads,” he said.
