Kimberley - A man died and 10 people were injured when the driver of a bakkie collided with a bus on the N12 near Kimberley on Thursday, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said the driver of the Corsa bakkie was overtaking a stationary truck when he collided with a bus, 70km outside of Kimberley, en route to Cape Town.

"What actually transpired during the collision will need to be investigated by the local authorities, but the driver, and only occupant of the bakkie, was flung from his vehicle and he died at the scene," she said.

Ten people from the bus sustained minor injuries, she said.
