Havoc on Pinetown roads as pupils injured
PINETOWN – Pupils en route to school were injured when the taxi transporting them veered off St Wendolins Road smashing into a nearby house at 7:30 am.
Six pupils were among the 11 people injured when a taxi left the road way and collided with a house, coming to a rest on its side. Rescue Care Paramedics arrived on the scene to find that a single taxi had left the roadway and come to rest on its side next to a house. Once all of the injured had been stabilised they were transported to various Durban Hospitals for the further care that they required.
Just after 7 am Rescue Care Paramedics were called to the M13 Durban Bound near Stapleton Road. Two vehicles had collided just before joining the N3 Freeway. One person had sustained minor injuries and was treated and stabilised on the scene before being transported to a nearby hospital for further care.
At 07:41 Paramedics responded to Shepstone Road and Blasé Road in New Germany where two cars and a taxi had collided in a rear end collision. Two people had sustained moderate injuries and were stabilised on the scene before being transported to nearby hospitals for the further care that they required.
SAPS were in attendance at all of the above collisions and will be investigating the cause of the collisions.
