A bus accident on the N2 near Bridge14 at Gingindlovu caused injuries to eight IFP (Inkatha Freedom Party) supporters on Sunday Morning. The incident occurred as three busses, filled with fans of the political group, collided while heading to the IFP’s election manifesto launch at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

After the crash, emergency services rapidly descended upon the scene. “Firefighters worked to extricate the injured while paramedics administered treatment,” an emergency services spokesperson recounted the immediate response to the crisis. The scene of the accident was chaotic but managed efficiently as the first responders sought to comfort and treat those affected.

Among the injured was one individual who sustained critical injuries. “All the injured were stabilised at the scene before they were rushed to nearby medical facilities for further care.” said Authorities

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but early reports suggest that the collision took place under unclear circumstances. The normally busy N2 came to a standstill as the authorities managed the situation, with a backlog of traffic reported as motorists were routed away from the accident.

The IFP has yet to issue a formal statement regarding the accident but is certainly expected to address this unfortunate occurrence that has marred what was supposed to be a significant day for the party and its supporters.
