Horror accident claims 13 lives

A horror crash between a taxi and a bakkie on the Golden Highway near Lenasia in the south of Johannesburg has left 13 people dead. Emergency services spokesperson Malcolm Midgeley says the bakkie slammed into the back of the taxi. The impact was so great that it forced the bakkie through the taxi, causing it to explode in flames. Midgeley says the charred bodies of the victims were burnt beyond recognition. Attempts will be made to identify them today. Five people in the taxi were injured and are being treated in hospital. The drivers of the taxi and the bakkie survived the crash.
