JOHANNESBURG - Police are investigating the cause of a bus accident in which 10 people were killed in Magoebaskloof in Limpopo.

The Sunday school bus was travelling from Moria to Phalaborwa yesterday when the driver lost control.

Forty other people were injured, 10 of them critically.

Limpopo Transport Department spokesperson Kagiso Mootane say officials are investigating whether the bus was roadworthy.

"Let's make sure that our buses are roadworthy. To our drivers, let's reduce speed and not agree with bosses when they force you to drive non-roadworthy buses, because we end up losing lives."
