PARAMEDICS from Kwazulu Private Ambulance and other emergency services were called to the R620 in Ramsgate in the early hours of Friday morning for a reported crash.

Kwazulu Private Ambulance spokesperson Belinda Catchpole said on arrival they found a taxi on its side in the middle of the road.

“Fortunately, there were no passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash,” said Catchpole.

The driver allegedly lost control on a sharp bend, hit the embankment and overturned, landing the vehicle on its side.

On the same day, a head-on collision occurred in Glenmore in the evening, but there were no serious injuries reported. Kwazulu Private Ambulance paramedics said two light motor vehicles were involved in the crash.
