Six people died and 10 were injured in a collision between a truck and a minibus taxi on South N3 near Heidelberg and Ekurhuleni Road, Johannesburg on Monday.
The spokesman for the emergency services organization, Vincent Koza, told News24 that four women and two men were killed, while the 10 wounded were transferred to hospitals in the area for treatment.
"The truck driver was not hurt, it was only the passengers of the taxi and the taxi driver who were taken to the hospital," he says.
He added that all emergency services were in place and that SAPS would conduct an investigation.
Jose suggested that drivers find alternate routes when the road was closed until further notice.
