A bus accident this morning on the R555 between Ohrigstad and Burgersfort in Limpopo claimed the life on one school child and 45 others were left injured. This is after one bus rear-ended another bus.

Netcare 911 Spokesperson Chris Botha said when we arrived there we found that one child around 14-years-old died on the scene due to the severe head injuries that she sustained.

Botha said 44 people were injured one critically and the other injuries range from minor to moderate. They were all treated on the scene and then transported to hospital for further care.

The exact details to the cause of the accident will remain the subject of a police investigation.
