Free State - Several people were injured when a school bus and a bus carrying tourists collided on the N3 in the Free State on Monday afternoon, paramedics said.

The bus carrying the children from Durban to Johannesburg apparently crashed into the back of the first bus, carrying Dutch tourists, causing the tourist bus to overturn, ER24 spokesman Derrick Banks said.

It was not yet clear how many people were injured in the accident, between Villiers and Warden, Banks said. - Sapa
