[FLORACLIFFE] Eight injured in taxi rollover
Eight people, including a 3-year-old baby, have been injured in a single-taxi-rollover on Hendrik Potgieter Road in Floracliffe, Roodepoort early this evening.
ER24 paramedics from two bases were on the scene at 17:15 to find a minibus taxi on its roof in the centre median of the highway. The occupants of the vehicle had all managed to self-extricate and had luckily all escaped serious injury, suffering only minor to moderate injuries in the incident.
A 3-year-old toddler, her mother and a pregnant lady were treated and transported through to Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital for further care. Four other adults were treated and transported to Helen Joseph Hospital and one other was transported to a private hospital in the area for further treatment.
Metro, as well as JMPD, were on the scene for further investigations.
