When rescue teams arrived at the scene, it was reported that some passengers were still trapped in the bus.

Another luxury bus crash.,It seems 'luxury buses' have very ordinary drivers

Apart from destroying vegetation, veld fires also cause road accidents as we've just witnessed.Veld fires are an everyday thing especially around this time of the year. EMA needs to educate the 'new ' farmers about the dangers of veld fires and inform them that it is illegal under our laws to start such fires.
