JOHANNESBURG - Tshwane emergency services are on high alert in the Centurion area after three bridges were closed due to flooding.

Two motorists had to be rescued after being stuck in their cars on Wednesday evening.

More heavy downpours have been forecast for Thursday, with emergency workers urging residents to stay away from low lying areas.

Johan Pieterse for Tshwane EMS says: “We ask road users not to cross the low water bridges. We had to rescue two vehicles. If you can, then rather use alternative routes.”

At least 11 people were injured on Thursday morning as a taxi overturned on the M1 highway near Corlotte Drive due to the slippery road.

JMPD’s Wayne Minnaar says the driver fled the scene.

“Motorists need to adjust their speed and manage a safe following distance. Eleven passengers are injured, two of which are female passengers who are seriously injured.”
