Fifteen people have been injured – one of them critically – in a four-vehicle collision that included a minibus taxi along the N1 highway, near the R57 turnoff in Vanderbijlpark.
Spokesperson Russel Meiring said when ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene shortly before 6am today they found an elderly man who had sustained numerous injuries, leaving him in a critical condition. He was airlifted to hospital.
The others sustained minor to moderate injuries.
Meiring said a transport vehicle was found lying on its side across the two lanes while a taxi was found in the middle of the road. A panel van and light motor vehicle were found parked on the side of the road.
Local authorities are investigating the cause of the multiple vehicle crash.
