Taxi 'clipped' by train in narrow escape
Johannesburg - A taxi narrowly escaped being hit full-on by a train in Soweto on Thursday, leaving three people with minor injuries.
Netcare911's Jeff Wicks said it appeared that the train just "clipped" the taxi which might have slipped through a set of boom gates.
ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson told News24 their paramedics didn't do much on the scene because provincial paramedics were already seeing to the injured.
"The incident happened at the Main Reef Road station."
Netcare 911 was also on its way to the scene.
Eyewitness News reported that the taxi may have been carrying children.
