Three people are being treated in hospital after the taxi they were traveling in overturned on the R27 near Ysterfontein this morning.

It is alleged that one of the taxi's tyres burst and caused it to turn onto its right side and start sliding.

ER24 spokesperson Tristan Wadely says a 26 year old female was airlifted from the scene by the ER24 Discovery Medicopter and flown to Tygerberg hospital for the further treatment of her serious injuries.

"Another two patients were transported by a road ambulance to a nearby hospital,” he said.

It is believed that there were ten occupants in the taxi when the incident occurred.
