Posted in Latest News

A taxi underway from Kanana to Klerksdorp overturned on the Orkney Road after a tyre burst on Tuesday morning 14 January. The taxi was transporting 11 passengers, mostly pensioners, said W/O Elize Kruger, police spokesperson. One passenger suffered serious head injuries while the others were transported to hospital with minor injuries or treated at the scene. Police officers on the scene commented on the poor condition of the vehicle with worn tyres that probably caused the blow out. The police have opened a case of reckless and negligent driving.
