Two people have been killed and at least 49 others injured after a school bus collided with another vehicle in KwaMbonambi, KwaZulu-Natal, paramedic services said on Thursday.

"Information filtering from the scene indicated that the accident was between a school bus and a bakkie," the province's emergency medical services spokesperson Robert McKenzie said.

IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Dylan Meyrick said the head-on collision resulted in the bus going down an embankment while the Fortuner remained on the road.

The vehicle's two occupants died, while a child has been airlifted to a local hospital in critical condition.

The bus passengers did not sustain serious injuries, he said.

The scene has since been cleared.
