Two men were killed and thirteen others injured this morning following a head-on collision between a taxi and bakkie on the Elias Motsoaledi Road in Soweto.
ER24 paramedics along with other services, arrived on the scene to find a taxi parked on the side of the road while a bakkie was found parked on the opposite side.
Upon closer inspection, paramedics found that two men had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead.
Thirteen other patients were found and assessed on the scene. Six were found to have sustained critical injuries while seven others had sustained minor to moderate injuries.
Paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured with advanced life support interventions. Once treated, one of the critically injured patients was airlifted to a nearby hospital by the ER24 Oneplan Helicopter. The remaining patients were transported by ambulance to nearby hospitals for further treatment.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
