Lucky escape as school bus crashes
Around 50 school children escaped unharmed when their bus almost plunged down an embankment
The incident happened in Tongaat in KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday, said paramedics.
Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said the bus had been parked on an incline along the R614 when it inexplicably rolled down a hill.
“The bus crashed into barriers and a tree. The tree then prevented it from falling down a fifty metre embankment,” said Botha.
Two people were treated for minor injuries at the scene before being transported to a hospital in the area.
Investigations into the incident are under way.
