Pretoria - A woman was killed when a taxi crashed into a bus in central Pretoria on Tuesday, paramedics said.

One of the vehicles apparently skipped a traffic light, said emergency services spokesperson Johan Pieterse.

"The paramedics found one critically injured woman on the scene. Unfortunately she passed away," said Pieterse.

Four injured people from the taxi were taken to the Tshwane District Hospital.

The bus driver was not hurt.

    "One of the vehicles apparently skipped a traffic light..." Showing a little compassion for the taxi's at all News24? I think we can all assume who's fault it was. RIP the woman...another unnecessary death :(

    When we see bad or reckless driving, no matter who it is, we need to report it. Go to www.drivelikeachop.co.za and report them.

    Another taxi-another death! However minister of transport still refuses to step up and do something about these death traps! Maybe Shabangu should take over as transport minister-she can get the taxis to be liable for the deaths st last!
