Four people were killed in a bus crash outside Bloemfontein early this morning.

“Fourteen other passengers, including the bus driver, sustained various injuries and they were all treated on the scene and transported to either Pelonomi Hospital or Mediclinic Bloemfontein for further care,” said ER24 medics spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.

She said a representative from the bus company arrived at the scene and collected the passengers’ luggage.

The accident happened after the driver swerved to avoid a buck in the road, ER24 said.

The vehicle was travelling from the Eastern Cape to Johannesburg.
