Johannebsurg - One person was killed and three others were injured when a minibus taxi and a car collided on Dane Road in Midrand in Johannesburg on Sunday afternoon.

ER24 spokeswoman Ineke van Huyssteen said paramedics arrived on the scene at 1.30pm and found one person trapped in one of the vehicles.

"The fire department had to extricate the patient with the jaws-of-life. The other patients were sitting next to the road and were already taken out [of the vehicle] by the medical services. The driver of the one vehicle had unfortunately sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead on the scene."

The injured people were transported by ER24 to hospital for further medical care. The cause of the crash was not yet known, Van Huyssteen said.
