[CRAMOND] – Taxi rollover leaves one dead, eight injured.
One woman was killed and eight others left injured this afternoon when the taxi they were traveling in rolled off the R33 in Cramond, KwaZulu Natal.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 16h00 to find the taxi upright on the side of the road. Several people were found scattered around the vehicle.
Medics assessed the patients and found that one woman had sustained numerous injuries and was in a critical condition while eight other patients were found with minor to moderate injuries.
While medics were treating the patients, the critically injured woman’s vital signs rapidly diminished. CPR and advanced life support interventions were immediately initiated in an effort to revive the patient.
Unfortunately, after some time, no vital signs returned and the woman was declared dead.
The eight other patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to nearby hospitals for further treatment.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
