JOHANNESBURG — South African authorities say 24 people died when a bus veered off a road and rolled over.

The accident happened Friday morning near De Doorns, a town in a grape-growing region near Cape Town.

Keri Davids, a spokeswoman for the health department of the Western Cape provincial government, says the dead include 22 females and two males.

South African media say the passenger bus was heading to Cape Town when the driver lost control.
