Taxi crash leaves 11 injured in Gauteng

ER24 says no serious injuries or fatalities were found on the scene.

A taxi overturned and rolled, leaving 11 people injured on Wednesday morning at Weilbach Road in Meyerton, south of Johannesburg.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said when paramedics and provincial emergency services arrived on the scene at 6:24am they found that 11 people had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate.

“Fortunately, no serious injuries or fatalities were found on the scene and passengers had already climbed out of the vehicle and were found lying on the grassy embankment,” said Meiring.

The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to Kopanong and Sebokeng Provincial hospitals for further care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
