JOHANNESBURG - Twenty people have been injured in a collision involving three cars and a taxi on Beyers Naude Drive near Cresta.

Paramedics say the Jaws of Life had to be used to extricate three passengers from the taxi, and they are now in a critical condition.

The cause of the accident is unclear but it’s understood the taxi over turned.

ER24’s Chitra Bodasing says local authorities are on scene.

“Paramedics and other services have arrived on the scene and found a badly damaged taxi that had overturned, lying on its roof. Three patients were trapped in the taxi. Fire and rescue services used the Jaws of Life to extricate the patients.”
