ONE person sustained serious injuries after a taxi veered off the road in Margate on Monday afternoon.

The accident occurred along Marine Drive.

“Indications from the scene indicate that the vehicle veered off the road and collided with a pole and came to rest against a wall,” said Netcare 911’s Chris Botha.

Paramedics found that one person sustained serious injuries. After the patient was stabilised they transported him to a Port Shepstone hospital.

On Saturday, six people were injured following an accident between a bakkie and a bus in Southboom.

Netcare 911 and another emergency service treated the injured on scene.
