At least 20 people were injured in a crash involving three MyCiti buses at Cape Town’s busy Civic Centre terminus on Tuesday morning.
Within minutes paramedics were on the scene to assess shocked passengers for back and leg pain.
A woman sat crying with a bandaged hand and man was being stretchered into an ambulance as paramedics triaged on the scene.
Three buses were involved in the crash.
It appeared the impact was severe enough to take out the front window of one bus and the side windows of another. But this may have been a result of passengers trying to force their way out the buses.
Thousands of people stream through the transport hub every day.
Traffic was backing up in the vicinity causing severe bottlenecks.
Bus drivers were skirting the scene and dropping passengers off at points usually used for departure.[Source: News24]
