Pedestrians hit by taxi, run over by truck
Pietermaritzburg - Two pedestrians were killed and another was seriously injured by a minibus taxi outside Dalton near Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal paramedics said on Saturday.
The taxi apparently knocked down the three as they were about to cross the road on Friday evening, ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said.
A sugarcane truck then drove over two of the pedestrians.
The third pedestrian was found just off the road.
Banks said two taxi commuters were treated for minor injuries.
