A MINIBUS taxi rear-ended a motor car in Southbroom on the R61 on Thursday morning after the driver tried to avoid a duiker that was running across the road causing a traffic jam.

Belinda Catchpole of Kwazulu Private Ambulance said no serious injuries were reported.

“Witnesses at the scene indicate that traffic was brought to a standstill when the duiker was running around, unfortunately, it was on a bend and the minibus came from behind and hit the car in front,” she said

SAPS were on scene to investigate.
