Taxi crashes into bus leaving fifteen injured in Eikenhof

Fifteen people were left injured this morning, one of them seriously when a taxi crashed into the side of a bus on the R550 in Eikenhof.

ER24 paramedics, along with the City of Johannesburg EMS and other services, arrived on the scene at 07h10 to find the two vehicles in the middle of the road. Several people were found walking around on the scene while a woman was found lying trapped inside the taxi.

Rescue medics freed the woman from the vehicle using the jaws-of-life equipment while medics tended to the patients.

On assessment, medics found that the entrapped woman was in a serious condition while fourteen other patients had sustained minor to moderate injuries.

The patients were treated for their injuries, and the seriously injured woman provided with pain-relief medication before they were transported to various provincial hospitals for further care.

Fortunately, no-one from the bus sustained any injuries.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
