The driver of a bakkie which rolled several times, killing 10 people on Ou Kaapse Weg in Cape Town, has been located at a "local hospital", police say.

Police are investigating a culpable homicide case following the early morning accident on Saturday.

Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut confirmed that police were investigating the incident and that, after initial fears the "driver had fled the scene, he has since been located at a local hospital".

Preliminary investigations indicate that the driver of the bakkie was transporting 23 contract workers from work to their homes when the vehicle overturned at around 01:30 on Saturday.

Western Cape Transport MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela said reports also indicated that the bakkie's brakes were "ineffective at the time of the accident".

Madikizela visited the injured workers in hospital on Sunday.
