Several people have been injured when a bus crashed into a house in Asheville this afternoon.
The bus was reported that it went backwards through a fence and into a house in Ashville, at Ilembe District.
The incident occurred on the link road towards Glendale.
When the KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services and a local private ambulance arrived at the scene, they found the wrecked bus stationary against the collapsed house wall.
On assessment, Paramedics have treated five patients.
“Three other patients of the injured were occupants of the bus; the two are school children, aged about 15, and a woman about 40 years of age. A man of about 25 years old, has
sustained serious injuries, after he was hit by the bus while walking on the road.
Another pedestrian sustained only minor injuries,” reported Media Liaison for EMS, Robert McKenzie.
Minor injuries were sustained in this collision, as no one in the house was injured.
The cause of the crash is not known at this stage but local authorities will be doing further investigations.
