15 people have been injured in
an accident on the Swawelstert Road in Paarl this morning.
It is believed that the bus was
transporting the occupants to work when the collision occurred.
ER24 Spokesperson Russel Meiring said when
ER24 paramedics arrived on scene, they found that a bus had left the road and
had come to rest in a nearby vineyard.
Meiring added that some of the
occupants were found sitting outside while two patients were found sitting
inside the bus.
“On assessment, paramedics
found that 15 people had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Paramedics
treated the patients on scene and thereafter transported them to Mediclinic
Paarl and Paarl Hospital for further observations. Fortunately no one had
sustained any injuries.” Meiring said.
The exact details to the cause
of the collision will remain the subject of a police investigation.
