Police Spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said police details are attending the scene and preliminary findings indicate that 9 people died on the spot. Assistant Commissioner Nyathi said although the details are still sketchy, the kombi was carrying 17 passengers despite being authorised to carry 15 passengers.
