Ten people have been killed and four seriously injured in crash involving a minibus taxi on the N2 in KwaZulu-Natal, provincial transport officials said today.

“The taxi was travelling from Durban to Mtubatuba on Monday (yesterday) when it collided with a bakkie,” transport spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said.

Transport MEC Willies Mchunu sent a delegation led by the department head, Chris Hlabisa, to visit the survivors in hospital and inspect the accident scene.

Mchunu said: “This is unacceptable. We cannot be losing people like this on our roads, and we urge drivers to drive diligently.”
