Scores of passengers were left injured and one trapped after a taxi driver in Johannesburg allegedly failed to brake in time and smashed into the rear of a truck on Allandale Road on Wednesday morning, Kempton Express reports.
Emer-G-Med general manager northern operations Jurguen Kotze said the taxi driver was nowhere to be found when emergency personnel arrived at the scene.
“The accident occurred around 7.30am and left most of the passengers with moderate injuries and one passenger in critical condition. The Jaws of Life were used to free the passenger who had been trapped for about 14 minutes,” said Kotze.
