A female passenger was also seriously injured.

Meanwhile, Western Cape transport authorities have confirmed an unroadworthy private charter bus has been impounded on the N2 near Sir Lowry's Pass.

The vehicle which was transporting a group of rugby players en route to Swellendam was pulled over in the early hours of Friday morning.

Officials also found the driver was not in possession of a valid driver's license.

Provincial Traffic Chief Kenny Africa says, "Our officers stopped the bus in Sir Lowry's Pass and discontinued the use of the bus because it was totally unroadworthy.

Earlier in March, 24 people died when the bus they were traveling veered off the road and crashed in the Hex River Valley pass near De Doorns.
