Limpopo police are trying to determine what caused the horror crash in which seven young people and an adult died in a head-on collision near Tzaneen late on Friday night.
Spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says matrics from different schools had hired a minibus taxi to transport them from a party.
The taxi collided with a car on the R-36 and burst into flames, causing six of the eight pupils in the minibus to be burnt beyond recognition.
The other two were critically injured.
The taxi driver and an 18-year-old female passenger in the car were also killed.
The driver of the car, also an 18-year-old woman, survived.
