Police say the driver of a Rea Vaya bus that collided with a motorbike killing two people and injuring two others in Parktown north of Johannesburg this morning, skipped a red traffic light.
The bus hit and killed the 10 year old boy and his father, who died on the scene. The injured were rushed to hospital.
Three other vehicles were also involved in the collision; one of the drivers of a light motor vehicle sustained critical injuries and is currently receiving medical attention at the nearby Netcare Milpark hospital.
The other driver is said to have received minor injuries and is also receiving treatment.
The area has been cordoned off and police say the driver of the bus didn’t sustain any injuries and there were no passengers on the bus.
The motorbike that was carrying the deceased is currently trapped under the bus.
Emergency services are currently cleaning the scene of the crash.
I just witnessed this at Parktown.
I saw two dead bodies…(a school learner and a motorcyclist. )
