JOHANNESBURG- A bus crash in South Africa killed at least 11 people and injured several others on Friday, police said, barely two weeks after another accident took the lives of nearly 30 people.

The bus traveling from Johannesburg to neighboring Zimbabwe drove into an oncoming sedan in Makhado, 270 km (160 miles) north of the capital, Pretoria.

"We lost about 11 people, five in the sedan and six in the bus," said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi, spokesman for police in the northern Limpopo province. "Some of them were Zimbabwean, but we are still in the process of identification."

Police are investigating a case of culpable homicide although both drivers were killed in the early morning crash, which happened as the bus was overtaking a truck.
