Mpumalanga – One man was killed and 21 people were injured when a small bus overturned on the R546 Standerton Road between Standerton and Secunda on Saturday night.
ER24 and other paramedic services responded to the scene shortly before 20:00 and found the bus on its side in a veld next to the road, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.
"Several people were found scattered around the bus. A man was found with fatal injuries near the bus.
"There was nothing that paramedics could do for him and he was declared dead on the scene," he said.
Injuries ranging from scrapes and bruises, to several fractures were found on the 21 survivors.
According to bystanders, the driver apparently tried to overtake another vehicle when he lost control and veered off the road, Vermaak said.
Local authorities were on scene to investigate.
