10 injured after 'scholar transport' rolls off road on Baden Powell Drive

Western Cape authorities are trying to ascertain the cause of a crash after a scholar transport rolled off the road between Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain on Wednesday.

ER 24's Ineke van Huyssteen said the learners and two adults were injured - some seriously - when the Toyota Avanza they were travelling in rolled over on Baden Powell Drive between the two townships.

van Huyssteen said the Avanza was found off the roadway about 20m from where the patients were found.

According to the EMS’ Deanna February, the children - aged between 10 and 12 - were being transported from three primary schools.

‘’Three patients who are seriously injured, were transported to Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital (two by ambulance and one by Skymed). One patient who sustained minor injuries was transported to Mitchell’s Plain Hospital and the rest who also sustained minor injuries were transported to Khayelitsha CDC.’’

‘’The incident occurred at 14:30 on Wednesday, 30 September, and four WCGH ambulances, two private ambulances, a rescue vehicle and Skymed were at the scene,’’ added February.
