The South African Broadcasting Corporation reports that the driver lost control of the bus at a curve and the bus went off the road rolling several times before landing on its side.
According to the news report several more people may die as rescue operations are still underway with more people trapped inside the wreckage.
Details on how many people were actually on the bus and how many are injured are still not available as ambulances are still ferrying the injured to Polokwane Hospital.
