The accident occurred at 18:45. It is understood the bus operates on route 103, which is in and around the Civic Centre.

'As far as we know, seven people sustained minor injuries and were discharged from hospital last night. It is unclear what has caused the accident, and we await the findings of the investigation,' said Rob Quintas, Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility.

He added that the vehicle operating company contracted to the City, who employs the bus driver, is required to submit an accident report to the City and to report the incident to the South African Police Service for investigation.

‘’The City is committed to providing a world-class public transport system to our residents, and threats to safety are regarded in a most serious light. We ask that the public please be patient while we await further information,’’ said Quintas.
