A woman died and 20 people were injured after a taxi collided with another car on Higginson Highway, near Mobeni Cemetery, in KwaZulu-Natal.
According to ALS paramedics, a fully-loaded taxi collided with a light motor vehicle and overturned before landing on its side on the M1 Higginson Highway on Wednesday afternoon.
