“Paramedics learned that all of the occupants managed to crawl out of the taxi and up the embankment,” he said.

“Nineteen occupants sustained minor injuries and three were treated for moderate injuries on scene before being taken to Northdale, Greys and Edendale Hospitals respectively.”

Vermaak said the local fire department used ropes to lower themselves to the wreckage to ensure there was no one else inside.
