JOHANNESBURG - Nineteen school children have been injured after the taxi they were travelling in overturned on Faraday Road in Vanderbijlpark, south of the Gauteng.

The children - aged between seven and 12 - were transported to the hospital for further treatment earlier on Wednesday morning.

It's the latest worrying incident involving scholar transport.

Just last week, a taxi driver was arrested in Limpopo after he had crammed 58 school pupils into a 14 seater taxi in Bela-Bela.
