JOHANNESBURG - The Mpumalanga Government says it's saddened by a crash that has left close to a dozen people dead.

Ten people were killed when a taxi hit three cows on the R538 between White River and Hazyview on Friday night.
Another four people were rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

Officials say the vehicle overturned before bursting into flames.

The Mpumalanga Community Safety Department's Joseph Mabuza said: “It’s very sad to lose such a number of people in one crash, in particular, because there were stray animals involved.”
