Pietermaritzburg authorities are on the scene of an accident assisting people who suffered in the Intercape bus crash. The bus packed with seventy people travelling by the N3 had crashed and overturned near Pietermaritzburg on Thursday.
“The crash occurred on the Chatterton on-ramp to the N3, resulting in a major backlog of traffic,” KZN Emergency Medical Services spokesperson Robert McKenzie said.
The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately clear but accidents are mostly blamed on poorly maintained vehicles and road state.
Paramedics have already assessed all the passengers, most of whom suffered minor injuries.
