Two women were killed and eight others injured this afternoon, 6 November, following a taxi rollover on the N1 north-bound between Allandale and New roads in Midrand.

ER24 paramedics, along with several other services, arrived on the scene to find the taxi lying on its side down a small embankment. Several people were lying scattered around the scene.

Upon closer inspection, paramedics discovered the bodies of two women lying near the vehicle.

Unfortunately, nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead.

Eight other people were assessed on the scene and it was found that they had sustained moderate to serious injuries.

The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported to nearby hospitals for treatment.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
