Johannesburg - Two children and a woman died after a bus crashed into their home in Schoemansdal in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Mpumalanga police said on Thursday.

Superintendent Abie Khoabane said the children, aged six and 13, and a 22-year-old woman were sleeping inside the house with two other adults when a bus crashed into their home at about 02:00.

The driver, who was the only occupant in the bus, apparently lost control of the vehicle, said Khoabane.

The woman and children died on the scene.

Two other people were taken to hospital with head injuries.

The bus driver was arrested and will appear in the Schoemansdal Magistrate's Court soon on a charge of culpable homicide.
