More than 30 people have been injured - some critical - in a collision involving two minibus taxis and a truck on the R114 close to the Heron Bridge in the Lanseria area on Friday morning. 

According to Emer-G-Med spokesperson Jurgen Kotze, one of the taxis could not brake in time and collided with the truck. 

A second taxi then rammed into the first. 

Kotze told News24 that more than 30 patients were being treated on the scene for injuries ranging from minor to critical. 

Other emergency services were also on the scene.
