JOHANNESBURG — South Africa's government says 29 people have been killed after a bus collided with a truck in the eastern Mpumalanga province.

Acting government spokesman Phumla Williams said Tuesday that scores of injured passengers were taken to a nearby hospital after the collision Monday night.

Traffic accidents with high death tolls are common in South Africa, and are often blamed on negligent drivers and badly maintained roads.

In March, 24 people died when a bus veered off a road and rolled over near De Doorns, a town in a grape-growing region near Cape Town.
