12 hurt in 5-car pile-up on N2
Cape Town - Twelve people were injured in a minibus taxi accident on the N2 in Cape Town, emergency services said on Thursday.
"A serious collision occurred this morning on the N2 highway just before the Borcherds Quarry off-ramp near the airport," said ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser.
A minibus taxi allegedly collided with the vehicle in front of it at "some speed", causing three other cars to also rear-end each other.
All the injured were passengers in the badly-damaged taxi. Eight of them sustained minor injuries such as bruising and lacerations. Four were injured seriously and taken to hospitals in the area.
