Arrive Alive

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.
Emergency personnel assessed the various patients and found that one woman, believed to be in her 20s, had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. CPR and advanced life support interventions were immediately initiated, in an effort to revive the patient.
Unfortunately, after some time, no vital signs returned and the woman was declared dead on the scene.
Seven other patients were attended to by ER24 with injuries ranging from minor to serious. They were treated for their injuries, provided with pain-relief medication, and thereafter transported to nearby provincial hospitals.
Several other patients were treated and transported to various hospitals by other services.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
