Johannesburg - Two adults and a baby were killed when their minibus taxi collided head-on with a truck on the N2 near Kokstad in KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday afternoon, paramedics said.

"The taxi overtook a truck and collided with another truck near Weza. A man and a woman in the front seat were killed," ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said.

A baby younger than one year old was flung behind the driver's seat by the force of the impact and died on the scene. The taxi driver had to be cut from the wreckage with the jaws of life. He and 13 passengers were seriously injured and taken to local hospitals.

The truck driver was unhurt, Banks said.
