A driver of a car was very lucky to have survived a tragic car crash with only a fractured wrist after colliding into the rear of a stationary bus and trailer on Friday evening on the N1 approximately 50km north of Bloemfontein, in spite of the car being damaged.
It is claimed that the bus was parked partially in the emergency lane and partially in the left lane without any emergency triangles or lights after breaking down when the car crashed with it.
Both southbound lanes were blocked for several hours for clean-up operations.
The patient was checked out on scene by the emergency unit before being rushed to a hospital in Bloemfontein for further check-up.
The four occupants of the bus didn’t sustain any injuries.
