TEN pupils of Nyaniso High in Matatiele were injured, including the driver, when the bakkie they were travelling in veered from its lane and hit an embankment and overturned on Monday morning.

The bakkie was taking the pupils to school and reportedly overturned when the driver tried to avoid a head-on collision as it was now facing on-coming traffic.

The accident happened between Hillside and Bethesda in Matatiele.

Matatiele police spokesperson Lieutenant Raphael Motloung said the injured pupils were rushed to Tayler Bequest Hospital in Matatiele.

“The vehicle is beyond repair. A reckless and negligent driving case was opened against the driver at Lukholweni police station,” he said. - Supplied
