JOHANNESBURG – Five people have been injured after a bus crashed into a concrete structure in Denver in Joburg.

It’s not yet clear what caused the accident earlier on Tuesday morning.

ER24’s Russel Meiring said that those injured had been rushed to hospital: “On close assessment, it was discovered that two people were trapped inside the concrete structure while three others were found outside. The Johannesburg Emergency Service managed to rescue the two people from the structure."

Eyewitness News can confirm that no children were inside the bus at the time of the crash.

They had all been dropped off at their nearby primary school before the accident happened.

At the scene, tow truckers were busy removing the wreckage.

The front section of the bus drivers’ side was mangled, clearly showing where it crashed into the concrete wall.

People who witnessed the crash were too scared to comment but said that it seemed like the driver may have lost control of the bus, with unconfirmed claims that he sped through an intersection.
