Another vehicle collision in KwaZulu-Natal has resulted in the injuries of more children.
In less than 24 hours earlier this week, 31 children were injured in two separate accidents in Pietermaritzburg and Groutville, both on the north coast.
On Thursday afternoon, a vehicle rear-ended a taxi carrying schoolchildren on the N2 northbound near Tinley Manor, causing the taxi to roll numerous times.
“ IPSS Medical Rescue said the accident left many children injured.
“Four patients were transported to facilities under the care of IPSS Medical advanced life support, and two under the care of IPSS Medical medics.
“A seventh patient was transported by another service, and the remaining nine patients were taken privately. Fortunately, no critical injuries were reported.”
IPSS Medical Rescue praised two women who stopped to calm and comfort the children until emergency services and parents arrived.
