Johannesburg - Two people were killed and 30 others were injured when two taxis and a car collided in Germiston, in the East Rand of Johannesburg, paramedics said.

The accident took place on Grey and Black Reef road in Germiston, ER24's Russel Meiring said.

The 30 people, who's injuries ranged from minor to critical, were treated on the scene before they were taken to nearby hospitals.

“Eye witnesses stated the one taxi had apparently skipped a red traffic light before colliding with the other two vehicles,” Meiring said.

Paramedics found one of the taxis lying on its roof.

Investigations were underway. - Sapa
