4 die on the spot as a fleeing Kombi crashes into a Zim returnees’ bus in SA. The bus was travelling to Zimbabwe while the minibus was travelling towards Makhado town along the N1 highway.

Four people died while 10 others were injured when a bus transporting Zimbabwean returnees collided head-on with a kombi early Friday morning between Musina and Makhado (Louis Trichardt) towns in South Africa.

The incident occurred around 5 am near Sasol service station some 35 km before Musina town as the kombi was fleeing from a security checkpoint, with police in hot pursuit.

Limpopo’s Department of Transport and Community Safety on Friday said that the driver of the minibus and three passengers were certified dead on the scene. The Department said in a statement:

It is alleged that the driver of the minibus taxi lost control and collided head-on with an oncoming bus.
