No fatalities occurred when a taxi rolled on the R300 last week.

A total of 18 people were left injured in the accident on Tuesday morning near the N2 turnoff.

ER24 paramedics, along with Metro Rescue Services, arrived at the scene and found the taxi on the side of the road on a small embankment. Several passengers from the taxi were found walking around on the scene while one was trapped beneath the vehicle.

Metro Rescue Services had to use specialised equipment to free the passenger from under the vehicle.

Paramedics assessed the passengers and found that 18 had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Fortunately, there were no fatalities.

The patients were treated for their injuries and then transported to various private and provincial hospitals for further care.

The details surrounding this incident are not yet known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
