19 people have lost lives after the minibus they were traveling in lost control and rolled down a steep embankment in South Africa.
The incident took place on Sunday in Pietermaritzburg near a bridge.
Reports say 18 people had died on the spot and later the number increased with one who died while receiving medical treatment.
South African Department of Transport said the minibus was overloaded — carrying 10 more people than its license allowed.
Twenty-six people were on board, including the driver.
A spokesman for the transport department said the passengers were on their way to church.
