School bus bursts through holiday resort wall


A school bus from Koppewaai in Bela Bela burst through Forever Resorts Warmbad’s wall on Friday afternoon.

Tidimalo Chuene, spokesperson for the department of education in Limpopo, told RNews that the accident took place at around 13:20 in Chris Haniweg.

“According to the preliminary investigation, the driver of the Nissan bus lost control of the vehicle and hit a brick wall. The cause is attributed to brakes that failed,” she said.

Three passengers suffered moderate to serious injuries. A total of 38 passengers, including the driver of the bus, sustained minor injuries.

Patients who required further medical assistance were taken to the nearest hospital.

The police and emergency services, as well as community leaders, were on the scene to assist the resort’s management team.
