Eleven people were left injured this morning when a taxi crashed into a light motor vehicle and rolled on the M1 Highway near the Athol Oaklands turnoff in Johannesburg.
ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene shortly after 09h15 to find the taxi lying on its roof in the emergency lane. The occupants had already climbed out of the vehicle and were found seated on the embankment.
Paramedics assessed the patients and found that eleven had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Fortunately, no fatalities were found on this scene.
The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to Busamed Private Hospital for further care.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
