FOURTEEN people were left injured this morning when a taxi rolled on the N12 near a casino in Klerksdorp.

ER24 spokesperson, Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived on the scene and found a taxi lying in a ditch on the side of the road. 

“Several occupants from the taxi were found walking
around on the scene.

“Paramedics assessed the patients and found that 14 people had been in the taxi at the time of the collision,” Meiring said.

He said all 14 patients were assessed and found to have sustained minor
