12 Killed in a head-on crash between bus and a Toyota SUV on the N1 near Mookgophong off-ramp

12 January 2022 | From Arrive Alive

Twelve people were killed and eight others escaped with injuries in a head-on collision involving a 22 seater Iveco bus and a Toyota SUV on the N1 near Mookgophong off-ramp. It is alleged that the driver of the  SUV lost control of the vehicle due to a tyre burst and colliding head-on with a  22 seater Mercedes Benz bus. 

The bus burst into flames and eleven occupants trapped inside were burnt to death. The driver of the SUV was also killed on impact. Eight people survived, six are serioulsy injured and two escaped with minor injuries. 

Transport and Community Safety MEC Mavhungu Lerule-Ramakhanya has sent messages of condolences to the affected families and wish speedy recovery to the survivors. The MEC is once again pleading with Motorists to inspect their vehicles before they get into the road. She is concerned that most of the fatal accidents reported on the N1 have a common cause.
