Johannesburg - Two people were killed and 16 others injured on Sunday night in a head-on collision between a minibus taxi and a light motor vehicle on the R559 road between Randfontein and Carletonville, paramedics said on Monday.
ER24 personnel, along with several other services arrived on the scene just after 7 pm to find the car on one side of the road while the taxi was on the opposite side, spokesman Russel Meiring said.
"The passengers from the taxi had already climbed out of the vehicle and were found walking around the scene," he said.
On closer inspection, paramedics found a man lying outside the car while four people were found inside.
"Medics assessed the patients and found that the man was in a critical condition with rapidly diminishing vital signs while the woman in the front passenger seat had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life," said Meiring.
