JOHANNESBURG – The death toll from Friday afternoon's fatal accident in Krugersdorp has now risen to eight.
A taxi collided head-on with a truck on Luipaard Street, injuring several others.
Traffic is still severely backed up as a result of the accident.
ER24’s Russel Meiring says: “Unfortunately, all eight passengers had sustained multiple fatal injuries, nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead on the scene. At least fourteen other patients were found on the scene with injuries ranging from minor to serious and were treated by paramedics and were later transported to hospital for further assessment.”
