ACCIDENT INVOLVING GO GEORGE MINIBUS

George Municipality confirms that a GO GEORGE minibus was involved in an accident with a private vehicle last night. South African Police Services are investigating the incident. GO GEORGE confirms that no passengers were on board at the time of the incident, but that both George Link drivers sustained light injuries and were released after treatment at George MediClinic last night.

According to a statement released last night by the SAPS Southern Cape spokesperson, Capt Malcolm Pojie, the accident happened at about 20:15 at the traffic light crossing at Delville Park/Rosedale and Beach Road.

 “It is alleged that a black Golf that was travelling towards town, jumped a red traffic light and collided with the side of the GO GEORGE minibus. The bus was crossing Beach Road from Rosedale into Dellville Park when it overturned due to the excessive impact. The female driver and her co-driver sustained injuries to their neck and back respectively. They were taken to hospital for medical treatment. The driver of the Golf and his passenger, both men, were transported to hospital per ambulance, both in a serious condition, where the driver later passed on,” Pojie said.

George Executive Mayor, Alderman Charles Standers, expressed the city’s sympathies with the family of the deceased. “We sincerely regret this very sad incident and our thoughts are with everybody involved, including the traumatised bus drivers,” he said, and once again appealed to the community to drive safely and considerate towards all road users.

The directors of George Link, the bus operating company, confirmed this morning that both are stable, though shocked. “We are immensely relieved that our two employees have not sustained serious injuries and that there were no passengers on board at the time,” they said.

 

GO GEORGE-MINIBUSONGELUK OP 24 APRIL 2016

George-munisipaliteit bevestig dat ‘n GO GEORGE-minibus gisteraand in ‘n ongeluk met ‘n private voertuig betrokke was. Die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisiediens ondersoek die voorval. GO GEORGE bevestig dat daar geen passasiers in die bus was tydens die voorval nie, maar dat albei George Link busbestuurdeers ligte beserings opgedoen het en na behandeling by George MediClinic later gisteraand ontslaan is.

Volgens ‘n verklaring wat gisteraand deur die Suid-Kaapse polisiewoordvoerder, kapt. Malcolm Pojie uitgereik is, het die ongeluk om ongeveer 20:15 by die verkeersligkruising by Delvillepark/Rosedale en Beachweg plaasgevind.

“Daar word beweer dat ‘n swart Golf wat in die rigting van die dorp op pad was oor ‘n rooi verkeerslig gery het en gebots het teen die kant van die GO GEORGE-minibus. Die bus was besig om Beachweg oor te steek na Delvillepark toe dit omgeslaan het weens die geweldige impak. Die vroulike busbestuurder en haar medebestuurder het onderskeidelik beserings aan die nek en rug opgedoen en is hospitaal toe geneem vir behandeling. Die bestuurder van die Golf en sy passasier, albei mans, is per ambulans hospitaal toe vervoer, albei in ‘n ernstige toestand, waar die bestuurder later oorlede is,” het Pojie gesê.

George se uitvoerende burgemeester, raadsheer Charles Standers, het die stad se simpatie met die familie van die oorledene betuig. “Ons betreur hierdie hartseer voorval en ons gedagtes is by al die betrokkenes, insluitend die getraumatiseerde busbestuurders,” het hy gesê, en weereens ‘n beroep op die gemeenskap gedoen om veilig en bedagsaam teenoor alle padgebruikers te bestuur.

Die direkteure van George Link, die busbedryfsmaatskappy, het vanoggend bevestig dat albei stabiel, maar steeds in skok is. “Ons is oneindig verlig dat ons twee werknemers nie ernstig beseer is nie en dat daar geen passasiers in die bus was tydens die ongeluk nie,” het hulle gesê.
