“IPSS and Lenmed Advanced Life Support paramedics are stabilising the injured persons before transporting them to various hospitals.”

Herbst said the one lane had been opened to traffic.

In a separate incident this week, 13 people from one family were killed in an accident on the D429 Kilmun Road in Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal, on Saturday afternoon.

Among the victims was a 2-year-old.

It is believed that the minibus taxi rolled down a bank. The family were returning from a ceremony.
