A TAXI accident in Durban last week has now claimed nine lives. Four people died at the scene, one on the way to hospital and four in hospital on Saturday, including a baby that was stillborn.

Wednesday’s accident involved two taxis, one heading for Pinetown while the other was going towards Lindelani. The driver who was travelling towards Pinetown has been charged with culpable homicide and reckless driving.

Transport MEC Willies Mchunu has sent his condolences to the bereaved and urged motorists to comply with the rules of the road. “Law enforcement agencies ... will bring all law breakers to book,” he added. — WR.
