Bloemfontein - A man was killed and 18 people were injured when an ambulance and a minibus taxi collided on the R73 between Kroonstad and Viljoenskroon in the Free State on Tuesday, Netcare 911 said.

Spokesperson Jeff Wicks said initial information suggested the minibus attempted to give way for the state ambulance, which was responding to a call. The two vehicles collided as the ambulance was passing.

The minibus overturned and came to rest on its side.

The person who died was in the taxi.

Some of the injured were serious and were taken by another ambulance to the Boitumelo State Hospital for further care, Wicks said.
