Comment on this story

Durban - One person died and another was injured in an accident involving three minibus taxis on the N3 near the Sherwood off-ramp outside Durban on Friday morning, paramedics said.

A taxi broke down in the fast lane and another stopped to help. A third taxi then crashed into the two, before veering off and smashing into a concrete barrier, Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said.

Botha could not confirm if the man who died was the taxi driver or a passenger. The injured man was treated on the scene before being taken to a local hospital. - Sapa
