Investigations are still ongoing to ascertain the cause. However, the police statement says a homicide charge has been laid against the drivers. The statement also said that the police authorities are yet to identify the victims of the ghastly accident.

We know that reckless driving and the poor state of roads has always been responsible for most accidents that occur in South Africa and other African countries. Not forgetting to mention the vehicles that aren't properly maintained to keep passengers safe on the road.
