It is alleged that the taxi came across the middle of the road and collided with A quantum bus from Lynco as well as a VW Polo. The exact cause of the accidents is still unclear at the time of going to press and are still under investigation.
Langamed Services South transported 12 injured and ER24 transported 4 injured. One passenger in the Taxi was declared dead on the scene. Unconfirmed reports indicate that he sustained head injuries when the taxi overturned.
Traffic was disrupted for a very long time.
“There is a number of problems with the Graceland/Emba road. The road is very narrow and currently has no visible markings. The traffic load is also very high with no visible law enforcement” says Mariaan Chamberlain ward 5 councilor, “we have been trying to get GMM to prioritize this road on our IDP but have not been successful.”
Friday also saw a number of accidents occur that kept emergency services busy. The driver of a Mercedes minibus lost control of his vehicle at approximately 17H00 Friday afternoon and rolled down an embankment near the Leandra toll gate.
Reports indicate that 15 people were injured and were transported to various hospitals by all emergency services.
Some of the injuries are quite severe according to EMS personnel on the scene.
