Durban – Three people have been killed and seven others injured after a taxi and light motor vehicle collided on the R103 in Tweedie in KwaZulu Natal, on Sunday evening, paramedics said.

Paramedics found two wrecked vehicles in the middle of the road, said ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring.

Several occupants from the taxi were found seated on the pavement. On inspection, paramedics found two men and a woman lying trapped inside the light motor vehicle.

"Paramedics assessed the three patients and found that all three had sustained numerous, fatal injuries. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the patients and they were declared dead on the scene."

Seven patients from the taxi were found to have sustained minor to moderate injuries. They were being treated by a doctor who had witnessed the incident.
