One person was killed and eleven people left injured following a collision between two vehicles and a taxi on the R71 in Mothibaskraal, 20km outside of Polokwane, this evening.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly after 18h00, they found multiple patients at the scene. Some were found lying while others were found sitting on the ground. Upon further assessment, a woman was found inside of the taxi showing no signs of life. Unfortunately, there was nothing paramedics could do for her and she was declared dead at the scene. Eight patients were found to have sustained minor injuries, while three others were found to have sustained moderate injuries.
ER24 along with the provincial EMS and other private emergency services treated the patients before transporting them to various hospitals for further medical care.
