THERE were a number or road accidents on the South Coast over the past few days.

One person died and a woman was seriously injured in a rollover accident on Edward Avenue in Uvongo on Sunday evening. Kwazulu Private Ambulance paramedics and with tow truck operators, security services and provincial ambulance conducted CPR on the man, but their efforts were in vain. The woman was stabilised and transported to hospital by Kwazulu Private Ambulance. It appears that the vehicle left the road, hit a tree and came to a standstill against a building on its roof. SAPS is investigating.

On Tuesday, there was a collision between a taxi and a car along Marine drive Margate on Tuesday evening. One person was treated for minor injuries while two others escaped with no injuries.

In Umzumbe, 19 people were injured in crash involving a taxi, a car and a bakkie in Umzumbe on Monday morning.

Netcare 911 paramedics responded to the collision.

Reports from the scene indicate that the three vehicles collided causing the taxi to veer off the road and overturn.

“Its twisted frame coming to rest on its side balancing on the Armco barriers,” said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

“Medics found that 19 people sustained injuries, one seriously while 18 escaped with minor injuries,” he added.

Medics treated the injured at the scene before transporting them to various hospitals. - Supplied.
