A taxi has lost control, mounted the pavement knocking two pedestrians before overturning coming to rest on its side on Berea Road before Botanic Gardens Road just after 7am this morning.
Rescue Care paramedics arrived on scene to find the taxi lying on its side off the roadway. Paramedics found that two pedestrians had been knocked over on the sidewalk and had sustained serious injuries. Advanced Life Support Paramedics worked to stabilize the two.
Six passengers in the taxi had sustained minor injuries and were also treated by Rescue Care paramedics. Once all of the injured had been stabilized on the scene they were transported to various Durban Hospitals for the further care that they required.
At this stage it is unclear what caused the single vehicle to lose control and overturn however SAPS were on scene and will be investigating further.
