Twelve people died in a crash involving a minibus taxi between Underberg and Bulwer in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday.

According to KwaZulu-Natal Emergency Medical Services spokesperson Robert McKenzie, paramedics were at the scene of the crash.

He said the vehicle veered off the road, down an embankment and came to rest near a river.
