Johannesburg - A 10-year-old boy died and at least 14 other people were injured when their taxi rolled on the N3 to Pietermaritzburg on Sunday, paramedics said.

The driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and it rolled, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha. The passengers were thrown out.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate the boy, but he died on the scene.

A 6-month-old girl and two elderly women were seriously injured.

Eleven passengers sustained minor injuries.
