Family wiped out in Pretoria crash
Pretoria - A family of four, including two young children, were killed when the car they were travelling in collided head-on with a bus on Moloto Road in Pretoria on Thursday, Gauteng paramedics said.
ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said that a female passenger's legs were also partially severed as she was flung from the bus during the collision at 06:00.
"She is critical and will be transported to Unitas Hospital. We are hoping to save her limbs.
"The children are younger than 8-years-old. It's a very sad start to the day to have an entire family wiped out," he said.
Thirty-one other passengers were taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Banks said the exact cause of the accident was not known.
