At least ten people have died and over 80 others were injured in road accidents across the country yesterday.

According to reports by paramedics and metro officials bad weather played a major part in several of the accidents which took place in Durban, Gauteng and Kwazulu-Natal.

In the most serious incidents, two people were killed in Germiston and sixteen others were injured when a taxi knocked down and killed a pedestrian before ending up in a ditch.

On the R101, north of Pretoria, two people were killed and 15 critically injured when a taxi and a bakkie collided head-on and burst into flames.

In one incident in Durban, the driver of a minibus taxi was killed and five of his passengers injured when he lost control while travelling on the M35 near Malagazi.

Meanwhile, in Cape Town, a motorist burnt beyond recognition after their car burst into flames after crashing into another vehicle on the N1 near Joostenbergvlakte.
