Johannesburg - Three people were killed when a taxi and a car collided in Heidelberg, Gauteng paramedics said on Monday.

Eleven others were injured, three of them critically, when the car and taxi collided on the R550 and R103 intersection on Sunday night, ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said in a statement.

Among them was a 6-month-old baby who was airlifted to hospital.

"It was difficult for paramedics to determine from which vehicle each of the injured had come from," she said.

The other injured were also taken to hospital.
