After our earlier report of the accident in Limpopo involving a taxi and hippopotamus, another sad accident has occurred in Pretoria. A bakkie carrying 14 men overturned after the driver lost control on the Garsfontein Road Bridge, opposite Menlyn Mall in Pretoria on Friday morning.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said the men were on their way to work.

Botha said that four men sustained serious injuries, while 10 others escaped with minor injuries.

“The seriously injured men were stabilised at the scene and then transported to a nearby hospital, under the constant care of a Netcare 911 advanced life support paramedic,” Botha said.
