Residents of Grassy Park were left in shock after a construction truck crashed into three taxis, injuring nine people, on Monday afternoon last week.

The cause of the collision in 5th Avenue is unknown.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring says ER24 paramedics, along with Life Healthcare and Metro Services, found the truck in the middle of the road while the three taxis were on the side of the road. The passengers had already climbed out of the vehicles and were walking around on the scene.

He says paramedics assessed the passengers and found that all nine had injuries, ranging from minor to moderate. Fortunately, no serious injuries were found. The patients were treated and transported to nearby provincial hospitals for further care.
