South Africa mini-bus crash kills 15

Published on 27/06/2011

A head-on collision between two mini-bus taxis on a rural South African road killed 15 people and seriously injured 10, officials said Monday.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the Sunday evening accident in the northern province of Limpopo, said Ashref Ismail of the Road Traffic Management Corporation.

“Apart from the fact that it was a head-on collision, we’re not sure (what happened),” Ismail told AFP.

South Africa’s roads are among the world’s most dangerous, with some 13,000 people killed every year — more than 35 a day.
