Cape Town – Another MyCiTi bus was set alight in Woodstock on Monday night.
According to the City's Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson, Theo Layne, "the driver of the bus sustained serious injuries", while the only passenger is in a "non-critical" condition.
Layne said Fire and Rescue Service vehicles – two fire engines and a rescue vehicle – were at the scene on the corner of Lawley and Roodebloom roads at 21.56pm.
The bus was reportedly stopped, had petrol poured inside and was set alight. Both the driver and passenger were believed to have sustained burn injuries.
Last Wednesday, another MyCiTi bus was targeted in Mitchells Plain. A petrol bomb was hurled at the vehicle, but luckily the bus was only slightly dented.
