So sad! Twelve people burnt beyond recognition in a horrible accident between Bethlehem and Fouriesburg early Saturday morning. Free State’s Department of Police, Roads and Transport said in a post on their official facebook handle.
“A BMW collided with two mini buses and 11 people in the minibus burned beyond recognition and the driver of the BMW also died,” said Hillary Mophethe, the department’s spokes person.
Six people were severely injured, but could still breath, though we aren’t sure of what would have happened at the hospital.
There was no much detail regarding the actual reason why the accident occured, but the department did promise to make more information available once they lay hands on any, as law enforcement agencies were at the scene of the incident.
The accident which occurred on one of the major routes to Lesotho is a wake up call for vigilance and extra caution to be taken on that very road.
We must wait for more detail…stay tuned!!!
