32 passengers injured after three-way MyCiti crash

This article has been updated.

ER24 has confirmed that 32 commuters have been left injured after a crash involving three MyCiti buses at Cape Town's Civic Centre station.

The people sustained minor to moderate injuries, reports EWN's Lauren Isaacs.

It's still unclear what caused the collision at a Myciti bus terminus in the CBD.

The impact of the collision took out the front and back windscreens and side windows of the buses.

Provincial Traffic services say multiple injuries have been reported following the incident this morning.

Traffic services and MyCiti officials are on the scene to investigate and paramedics have taken injured passengers to hospital.

Traffic is backed up and has caused some bottlenecks in area and delays for the various bus routes.

Isaacs explains that the crash happened after 8am on Tuesday morning.

The City of Cape Town could not be reached for comment.
