Durban- Two people have been killed and multiple others injured in an accident involving a bus and two cars on North Coast Road near Stanhope Place in Durban North.

RescueCare spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said paramedics arrived on scene just before 23:00 on Friday evening to find chaos.

“A fully loaded bus had collided with two cars along North Coast Road. On assessment the two occupants from one of the cars were found to have multiple critical injuries. One had passed away before paramedic’s arrival however paramedics attempt to resuscitate the passenger for close to 45 minutes but he too passed away on the scene,” said Jamieson.
