25 people have been injured in a head on collision between two taxis on the Stellenbosch Arterial Road near Symphony Way in Belville.
ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson says it is not clear as to why the accident occurred, but when paramedics arrived at the scene there were patients scattered around the two crushed vehicles.
“All 25 of the patients were assessed on scene for their various injuries, all of whom had sustained moderate injuries, and one man who had sustained serious injuries.
“A child was in one of the taxis, but was also fortunately not seriously injured,” said Jackson.
She added that all of the patients were taken to nearby provincial hospitals by various ambulances that were on scene.
