A taxi ploughed into a group of people in the early hours of Wednesday, killing four people, three of which were school kids enroute to school.
According to sources, four people, of which three were school pupils, were killed when they were hit by an out-of control minibus taxi on Prince Mcwayizeni Drive near the Isipingo Reunion Station on Wednesday morning.
The children had been waiting at the roadside while on their way to school.
Rescuecare spokesperson Garrith Jamieson said that seven other people were injured in the accident, which saw the fully laden minibus leave the road and plough into the unsuspecting pedestrians.
Jamieson described the accident as “horrific” and said that medics had raced to the scene shortly after 06:00.
“Paramedics arrived on the scene to find absolute carnage. A taxi had crashed through a sidewalk wall, knocking over multiple people and then crashing into another vehicle.”
He said that with the overwhelming number of dead and injured on the scene, more help had to be called in.
