On Thursday morning, a 13-year-old Durban boy reportedly drove his father's BMW X3 into a cab bringing children to school in KwaMashu. Capt Nqobile Gwala, a police spokesman, told reporters that the incident occurred around 7.45 a.m. in the L area of Durban's northern township. It is claimed that a 13-year-old motorist was speeding down Sibisi Road when he attempted to pass two vehicles in front of him and collided with a white Toyota Hi-Ace. The minibus cab overturned, hurting 23 students aged four to twelve. Everyone was taken to the hospital for medical care. According to Gwala, a charge of reckless and negligent driving has been filed at the Ntuzuma police station. Both drivers were handed two Road Traffic Act penalties.

The 27-year-old cab driver was charged with overloading, as was the parent of the light motor vehicle's driver for permitting a child to operate a vehicle without a driver's license. According to Reaction Unit SA's Prem Balram, the scholars received injuries ranging from minor to serious when the adolescent went on a "joyride." An enraged mob gathered at the site and threatened to harm the driver of the white BMW X3 suspected of causing the crash."Paramedics from several ambulance services stabilized the injured on the site before transferring them to medical institutions". Balram explained.
