Passengers of two buses escaped serious injuries after an accident outside Bloemfontein that also involved a truck.

ER24 spokesperson, Werner Vermaak, said paramedics and rescue services were called out to a scene about 30 kilometers outside Bloemfontein on the road to Thaba Nchu.

They found two buses that seemed to have rear-ended into each other. A truck was also involved in the accident.

Vermaak said the majority of the passengers were walking around on the scene.

He said 35 people were treated for minor and moderate injuries before they were transported to various hospitals in the Mangaung area.

The cause of the accident is not known.
