An accident involving a taxi on the
R34 near Newcastle left
two people dead and several people including children where injured.
It is believed the driver of the taxi
lost control and the taxi overturned several times before coming to a
ER24 Spokesperson Luyanda Majija
said one of the deceased was a male in his thirties who was declared dead by
responding paramedics as on their arrival he succumbed to his injuries.
“The second deceased was a female in
her forties who died after she arrived at Magedeni hospital. She was paralyzed
as the results of the severe spinal injuries she sustained. According to one
responding paramedic the taxi was traveling on relatively good road, making the
cause of this accident unclear.” Majija added.
