JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - A driver accused of killing 23 people when his truck crashed into four minibus taxis and two cars would apply for bail in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Sanele Goodness May's bail application was postponed earlier in October 2013 after his lawyer Louis Barnard said the defence "wanted some preliminary issues ironed out".

HORROR CRASH


On September 6, the truck May was driving hit four fully laden minibus taxis and two cars on the corner of Field's Hill (M13) and Richmond Road in Pinetown shortly before 7pm.
