Car and taxi collide, leaving one dead and several others injured in Klapmuts, Western Cape

This afternoon, one person was killed and approximately thirteen others injured when a taxi and a light motor vehicle collided head-on on the N1 in Klapmuts, Western Cape.

ER24, along with The Metro Ems and other services, arrived on the scene at 14h00 to find an overturned light motor vehicle and a taxi on the side of the road. Several people were seen along the roadside.

Medics assessed the patients and found that one had sustained fatal injuries while two others were trapped in the taxi in critical condition. Several others had sustained minor to moderate injuries.

Rescue services had to use specialised equipment to free the trapped patients from the taxi. Once released, medics treated the patients and provided the critically injured with advanced life support. 

Once treated, one critically injured patient was airlifted by the AMS Medical helicopter to a nearby hospital while the remaining patients were transported by ambulance.

The exact details surrounding this incident are unknown, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
