ER24 paramedics responded to an accident scene late last night following a collision between a taxi and bakkie in Du Randt Road in Putfontein Benoni resulting in 17 people injured.

Spokesperson Chitra Bodasing said they arrived on scene and found people lying on the road and in the veld. The taxi, with 16 occupants, and the bakkie, with one occupant, were in a head-on collision.

Bodasing added that the taxi driver sustained multiple injuries. Paramedics treated him on scene and he was later airlifted to hospital. One of his passengers, also in a critical condition, was transported to hospital by ambulance.

“it is understood the taxi driver and the passengers were ejected from the vehicle.” Bodasing said. 

Exact details to the cause of the accident will remain the subject of a police investigation.
