Two people died and 24 others were injured when a bus they were travelling in overturned and rolled on the R56 near Richmond, Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday, paramedics said.

”Paramedics and other services arrived on scene and found the wrecked bus lying upright on the side of the road. Occupants from the bus were spread across the scene,” said ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring.

Two bodies of a male and female lay near the bus. The two succumbed to their injuries before paramedics arrived, Meiring said.
