AN accident on the R61 just before Southbroom on Monday left 16 people injured, three seriously so.

A water tank apparently came off a vehicle and fell onto the main road.

A taxi and a car swerved to avoid the tank and collided with each other. Both vehicles rolled and came to a standstill in the field.

“Emergency services worked together and patients were stabilised and transported to various hospitals,” said Belinda Catchpole, spokesperson for Kwazulu Private Ambulance. - Supplied.
