Three people were injured on Friday, 28 January after the bus they travelled on crashed into the roadside barriers on the N1 highway outside Bloemfontein.  

ER24 spokesman, Russel Meiring said paramedics and another service arrived on the scene at 5:45 am to find a bus blocking the left-hand lane, partially on top of the barriers.
