One person has been killed and fourteen injured after the taxi they were traveling in overturned on the N7, between Bosmansdam and Plattekloof Roads, in the direction of Malmesbury.
“An occupant of the taxi was declared dead on arrival by emergency services. Four people sustained moderate injuries and ten others sustained minor injuries,” said ER24 spokesperson Tristan Wadeley.
The patients were taken to various nearby hospitals for further treatment.
It was unclear to paramedics on the scene as to what caused the Toyota Hi Ace taxi to overturn, but police are investigating the incident.
