Durban - Sixteen people were injured when a bus crashed into five vehicles in Durban on Monday morning, paramedics said.

"A bus that had been coming down Berea Road had failed to stop, colliding with five vehicles in the junction. Vehicles had been strewn across the intersection with one overturning after impact," Rescue Care spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said.

The accident happened just before 07:00 at the corner of Berea Road and Botanic Gardens Road in Durban.

"Paramedics from various services immediately began treating the injured people from all of the vehicles involved. More ambulances were called as a total of 16 people had sustained various injuries with three sustaining serious injuries.

"Once all of the injured had been stabilised, they were transported to various Durban hospitals for the further care that they required," said Jamieson.
