16 kids hurt in KwaZulu-Natal crash
Johannesburg - Sixteen schoolchildren were injured when two taxis collided on the R103 near Rosetta in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands on Thursday, paramedics said.
"A bystander explained that the two taxis collided head on with each other sending them in different directions," ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.
The cause of the accident was not known.
Both taxis had been transporting children, between the ages of 9 and 17, to school, he said.
ER24 took 11 of the children to Brandville and Greys Hospital. The other five were taken to hospital by other local services.
