Multiple injuries as taxi and heavy-duty tow truck collide on Van Reenen’s Pass

Emergency personnel, towing services and RTI officers responded to the scene

Numerous occupants in a minibus taxi were injured in a crash on Van Reenen’s Pass on Tuesday (September 10).


A heavy-duty tow truck was in the process of ‘recovering’ a truck that was in the ‘arrester bed’ when the taxi crashed into it.


Those in the minibus who sustained injuries were treated at the scene before being taken to hospital.


Emergency personnel, towing services and RTI officers responded to the scene.


The taxi had to be towed away.

An, "arrester bed", is what we American's describe as a, "runaway truck ramp", filled with small-size gravel. Van Reenan's Pass is in South Africa and also is referred to as the N-3 Highway linking Durban and Johannesburg.   R.
