Ten people were killed and five others critically injured in a bus accident at the Hex River Pass near De Doorns on Friday morning, Western Cape paramedics said.

ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said three people were apparently still trapped under the bus.

"We have multiple other patients with moderate and minor injuries."

She said the fully-laden bus was carrying about 80 people when it rolled down an embankment, off the N1 highway.
