Passengers injured in MyCiti bus crash

Share this article

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.

  1. Frankly I am surprised it took this long for something like this to happen. Drivers drive recklessly and too fast in that area and slam on brakes at the last minute and drive while texting or wearing headphones.

    Add to this the controller company was fired three years ago and we have yet to see a replacement controller in place and that no maintenance is done on the stations or buses (despite the fares having gone up 52% over the last two years) what did the city expect to happen?

    I am sure they will have their spin doctors and slick excuses ready soon enough and nothing will be done to prevent this occurring again.
