Johannesburg - A man died and a woman was injured when a motorcycle crashed into the back of a taxi in Randpark Ridge on Sunday morning, Johannesburg paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the accident happened just after 11:00 at the intersection on Beyers Naude Drive and Chaplin Road.

"A male in his late 20s died on the scene and a female passenger who was in the back of the taxi is being stabilised at the scene."

He said the Jaws-of-Life were needed to get the woman, who was in a serious condition, out of the taxi.
