The bus was travelling from Moria to Phalaborwa in the province when the driver lost control of the vehicle, the provincial department of transport said.


The victims included nine adults and a baby, spokesperson Kagiso Mootane said.

Police have launched an investigation into the cause of the accident, he said.

The latest accident brought to 23 the death toll of road carnages in two days.

In another road accident between Nqamakwe and Tsomo in the Eastern Cape Province on Saturday, six school children and a driver were killed when their mini bus taxi crashed.

Also on Saturday, six people, including a seven-year-old boy, were killed in an accident in the Free State Province.

Road carnage is a daily phenomenon, particularly during holidays in South Africa, which is among the countries that have the highest road facilities.

The country has more than 700,000 crashes a year on the average, with three children dying every day in road accidents. Enditem
