Johannesburg - Four pedestrians on an Alexandra sidewalk suffered serious injuries on Friday evening when a minibus taxi ploughed into them after the driver lost control of his vehicle, Johannesburg metro police said.

The driver was arrested and will appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday to face a charge of reckless and negligent driving.
