Seven Injured In Overturned Taxi: Waterloo - KZN

Seven occupants of a Toyota Hiace taxi were injured after the vehicle overturned on Crocodile Road in Waterloo - Verulam a short while ago.

At approximately 12:26 (Monday) members of Reaction Unit South Africa were called out to the scene by the public requesting assistance for the injured. Upon arrival the taxi was found lying on its roof. Seven passengers sustained minor to moderate injuries. They were treated on scene by Medics before being transported to Osindisweni Hospital.

It is alleged that the Toyota Hiace was travelling down Tiger Road when its brakes failed. In an attempt to stop the vehicle the driver turned onto Crocodile Road causing the vehicle to overturn and land on a bus shelter.

The driver was not injured in the accident.
