This morning, seventeen people were injured, two critically, when a taxi rolled on the R59 near the Swartkoppies offramp in Alberton.
ER24 and other services arrived at 09h00 to find a taxi upright in the centre median. All the passengers were found lying around the vehicle.
Medics assessed the patients and found that two people were in a critical condition while fifteen others had sustained minor to serious injuries. Fortunately, no fatalities were found.
The patients were treated, and the seriously and critically injured were provided with advanced life support interventions before they were transported to nearby hospitals for urgent care.
