STATEMENT BY KWAZULU PRIVATE AMBULANCE:
Kwazulu Private Ambulance responded to a report of a pedestrian that was hit by a vehicle on Tuesday morning just after 07:00.
When paramedics arrived at the scene on Knoxcore road, close to the Marine Drive intersection they soon realized that three people were injured.
One lady sustained serious injuries while two others were lucky to escape with only minor injuries. Kwazulu Private Ambulance paramedics treated and transported all three patients to hospital.
It is suspected that the brakes failed on the taxi which then collided with the three pedestrians and came to a standstill against the barrier.
The driver of the taxi was not injured. Law enforcement is investigating the matter further.
