    This is really bad reporting. There's a MAJOR difference between a train hitting a taxi and a train hitting another train. Get it together News24.

    And as our infrastructure rots with our lack of laws for taxis this will get more and more

    One Metro train drove into the back of another train. Not to worry lack of experience will prevail. Two train now set alight on the Umlazi line.
