THE driver and sole oc­cu­pant of a BMW died on im­pact when he crashed into a bus on the R102 near the Old

Mill turn-off shortly af­ter noon on Satur­day.

Both ve­hi­cles burst into flames and the driver of the bus, which was not car­ry­ing pas­sen­gers, was barely able to jump out of the pas­sen­ger door amid the ball of fire, which also ig­nited grass and su­gar cane on the road verge.

The bus driver es­caped with mi­nor in­juries.

The Dur­ban-reg­is­tered BMW ap­par­ently lost con­trol on a curve and col­lided into the bus on the wrong side of the road.

Both ve­hi­cles were to­tally burnt out.

City Fire and Res­cue mem­bers were quickly on the scene to tackle the blaz­ing ve­hi­cles Dave Sa­vides
