Head-on collision in Walkerville leaves at least one dead, seven injured.

At least one person has been killed and seven others injured this morning following a head-on collision between two taxis on the R550 in Walkerville.
ER24 personnel, along with several other services, arrived on the scene at 07h56 to find the two taxis on the same side of the road. The passengers from the two vehicles were found scattered around the scene.
