Ten occupants of a taxi were injured when the taxi they were travelling in crashed in to an office building on Jan Van Riebeeck Drive in Elsies River Industrial.
ER24 paramedics spokesperson Tristan Wadeley says when paramedics arrived on the scene they found that the Toyota Hi Ace taxi had crashed through the wall, and the front section of the taxi was sitting inside the office.
“The patients sustained minor to moderate injuries and were taken to Elsies Day Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital for further medical care.
“It is alleged that the brakes of the taxi failed which caused it to crash into the office building. There was no-one in the office at the time of the crash, said Wadeley.
