MBOMBELA - Mpumalanga's community safety MEC has ordered an investigation into the crash that killed two people and injured 113 near Mbombela on Wednesday morning.

His spokesman said: "Vusi Shongwe says an in-depth investigation would be able to determine if the cash-in-transit truck was roadworthy."

The investigation would help to determine if the cash-in-transit truck's owner, SBV, should be criminally charged, the spokesman added.

WAITING FOR PROBE

Reports say the truck's bonnet popped open and covered the windscreen. The truck then veered into the path of an oncoming articulated Buscor bus and the collision sent it off the road about 15km outside Mbombela.

The Mabuza statement added: "Those responsible must face the consequences."

SBV said it was investigating. A spokesman said: "A thorough investigation into the causes of the accident (wheels24 prefers the word "collision") is being conducted."

Further information would be disclosed when the probe was complete.

The company's group CEO, Grant Dunnington, sent his condolences to the families of the two people killed. "I hope that those who were wounded recover from their injuries as soon as possible."
