Multiple people have been injured after a minibus overturned on the N1 approximately ten kilometres from the Nyl Plaza near Makopane in Limpopo this afternoon.
Netcare 911 paramedics and other services arrived at the scene and found the minibus overturned several times and came to a standstill on its roof.
Reports from the scene indicate that the minibus veered from the south bound over to the north bound where it came to a standstill. Exact detail surrounding the cause of the rollover accident and preceding events will remain the subject of a police investigation.
