27 hurt as Polokwane bus overturns
Polokwane - Twenty-seven people were injured when a bus overturned on the N1 outside Polokwane, in the early hours of Friday morning, the Limpopo roads and transport department said.
Spokesperson Joshua Kwapa said the touring bus was on its way to 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 over 7 000 cars entered Limpopo through the Kranzkop Plaza toll gate from 00:00 to 06:00 on Friday.
"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 road," said Kwapa.
