A taxi accident late on Thursday evening left approximately 25 people injured. 

It is believed that two taxis collided into each on the R300 at Hindle Road in Somerset West. 

It is not exactly clear what caused the accident, however a bystander said one of the taxis was stationery when the other collided with him.  Police are investigating the accident. 

ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak said when paramedics arrived the fire services were already busy trying to extricate one man that was trapped in the wreckage and one lady was in very critical condition.

Vermaak added that an eyewitness stated that one taxi crashed on a stationery vehicle and the injured were treated at the scene before being transported to nearby hospitals.
