School bus accident in Mpumalanga: more details released


A boy, 13, died and three other teens were admitted to hospital as a school bus overturned on the R555 in Mpumalanga. As SADC reported earlier this week, the vehicle was transferring a group of school kids from Steelpoort to Middelburg when suddenly it flipped over on the slippery road near Laersdrift.

Local mass media posted that 13-year-old Gideon Miller appeared to be one of the accident victims. He suffered fatal damage and even paramedics could not save his life. Miller was the Grade 8 learner at HTS Middelburg and had been in the school for a mere five days.

On Monday, the school posted condolences on its official Facebook page:

“We would like to convey our deepest sympathy with the Miller family following the death of their beloved son and brother, Gideon Miller.”
