Durban taxi crash leaves 26 injured

01 January 2016 | Road Safety in the Media


A collision between a Taxi and a Bakkie has left twenty six people injured, three critically so on the N3 Durban bound before Tollgate Bridge just after 2pm today.

Rescue Care Paramedics arrived on the scene to find total chaos as passengers from both vehicles lay scattered on the national freeway. A Taxi and a Bakkie had collided before both vehicles rolled several times ejecting passengers from both vehicles. Three people one being a ten year old had sustained critical injuries and was stabilized on the scene by Advanced Life Support Paramedics. More ambulances were dispatched to assist in the multiple casualty scene. 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.

Rescue Care Paramedics would like to urge people not to travel on open back transport as the injuries sustained in a collision are severe as there is no form of protection covering them

It is unclear what caused the collision however SAPS were on the scene and will be investigating further.
