SEVERAL people were injured in a crash between a taxi and several vehicles on Monday at around 5 pm.

ER24, Netcare911, Vema paramedics and the fire department responded to the collision on Kingsway, next to the Total Garage.

Several people were injured, with the injuries ranging from minor to serious. Paramedics said patients were stabilised on the scene by emergency personnel and transported to the provincial hospital for further care.

One vehicle reportedly caught alight in the engine compartment. Swift action by Automatic Rust Control member Ettiene Meyer, ensured the fire was extinguished with a fire extinguisher from the garage.

Thanks must be extended to the community, which rallied together and assisted emergency workers in stabilising injured people. The SAPS were on the scene and an investigation will be conducted to determine the cause of the accident. — Supplied.
