Eleven people were injured on Monday when a taxi overturned on the N12, near the Glenharvie turnoff in Westonaria, Gauteng, paramedics said.

Paramedics arrived on the scene at 15:25 to find the taxi on its side on the shoulder of the road, ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said on Tuesday.

"The passengers had already climbed out of the vehicle and were found walking around on the scene," said Meiring.

All 11 passengers sustained injuries, ranging from minor to moderate and were taken to nearby hospitals for further treatment.

The driver was uninjured, Meiring told News24.

Local authorities were on the scene.
