The Observer "SA RoadLink Nightmare"
When the third one happened, I lost it. Now they broke their own record, soon after the last two which happened within the same month. This is a perfect example of greed. This company seems to have lost its ability to recognize reasons which attract civil lawsuits, but it seems to enjoy taking money from passengers and risking their lives and even worse they subject them to death at the comfort of their buses.
11 people lost their lives in an accident involving an SA Roadlink bus. The accident occurred on the southbound side of the N2 highway near Hibberdene. The SA Roadlink bus hit the truck it was trying to overtake, whereafter the bus driver lost control and veered into the northbound lanes of the highway, where a head-on collission occurred with a Toyota Camry. Five occupants of the SA Roadlink bus, including a five year old boy, and all 6 occupants of the Toyota Camry (a family on their way to Port Shepstone from Durban) died in the accident. The SA Roadlink bus was travelling from the southern Cape to Durban via the Eastern Cape. Read more CLICK HERE
