The bus then rolled down a slope while people were working on it. It then overturned and landed on its roof.

Netcare 911 and provincial paramedics arrived at the crash site to find that 16 people were injured. One had sustained serious injuries while 15 others escaped with only minor injuries.

Paramedics transported the injured to the Harrismith Provincial hospital.
