Copperbelt Bus Travelling To Zimbabwe Skids In The Snow And Overturns In South Africa Accident

A Copperbelt bus travelling from Cape Town to Zimbabwe lost control on the road and skidded in the snow before it overturned in an accident recently.

 

Copperbelt Bus Fails To Manoeuvre The Snow And Overturns In South Africa Accident

The accident happened between Colesburg and Bloemfontein early yesterday morning. It is still unclear how the Copperbelt bus accident occurred. However, there were no casualties from the crash.

The area has been experiencing snowfall in the past few days, making the N1 slippery. Some also suspect that the driver was speeding and failed to manoeuvre the snow-ridden road, resulting in the vehicle losing control and veering onto the grassy area beside the road.

Pictures circulating on social media show the bus lying on its side a few metres from the road. The bus trailer had also dislodged. The area where the crash occurred had a lot of snow, and the overcast sky was pregnant with more of it. South African emergency service providers rushed to assist the accident victims and retrieve them from the bus.

The distance from Cape Town to Harare is about 2,519.0 km through the N1, and a bus will take days on the road. In March this year, a Simplex bus travelling from Harare to Cape Town collided with a haulage truck on the N1 Highway near the Hex River Pass in the Western Cape. Thirteen people perished, while 26 others sustained injuries.
