Mbombela - A man was killed in a head-on collision between a car and a bus on Kamagugu Road outside Mbombela in Mpumalanga on Monday, paramedics said.

Paramedics and fire services arrived on the scene and found the bus and the car, which was wrecked, lying in the middle of the road, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said.

"On assessment, paramedics discovered two occupants in the light motor vehicle, a male driver and female passenger.

"When paramedics assessed the two patients, they found that the male driver lay trapped in the vehicle and had already succumbed to his multiple fatal injuries," Meiring said.

The woman had escaped without any injuries.

No one from the bus was injured.
