Two mini-bus taxis, two bakkies, a Fortuner and a sedan were found still blocking the highway. Two adult males were found to have suffered moderate injuries and four adult females and another adult male had suffered minor injuries. All were treated and transported to hospital by ER24 for further care. An eighth patient declined transportation to hospital.
