According to JMPD spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar, the first accident involved a bus, a taxi and another passenger vehicle.

The pile-up then caused a second collision involving five more vehicles.

“Four people died on the scene and 15 were injured and taken to various hospitals,” Minnaar told News24.

Emergency services and JMPD officials were still at the scene.

“Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use the N12 as an alternative route,” Minnaar said.
