A pedestrian was killed and at least five other people were injured when a minibus taxi crashed into a tree next to Shezi Road in KwaNdengezi in Durban on Saturday morning, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.
It was believed that the driver of the taxi carrying about 20 people lost control of the vehicle “and then knocked a pedestrian into a tree”, ER24 spokeswoman Annine Siddall said.
The driver and three of the taxi passengers sustained minor injuries and were transported to RK Khan regional hospital. One woman sustained moderate injuries and was transported to a private hospital in the area.
“It is believed that some of the other patients were transported to nearby hospitals by other emergency services on [the] scene,” Siddall said.
