KwaZulu Natal paramedics had their hands full as several accidents occurred in the province in the past 24hours.
In the most recent incidents a taxi accident has left 14 people injured on the N3 near Ashburton in KwaZulu Natal.
Netcare 911 paramedics say it appears as if the rear wheel of the taxi had a blow out causing the driver to loose control of the vehicle before it overturn.
Five of the 14 passengers sustained serious injuries.
In another incident last night, seven taxi commuters were injured when their taxi and a bakkie collided head-on in Durban.
Two of the passengers are in a serious condition.
Meanwhile a motorcyclist has been killed when his motorbike collided with a vehicle in Musgrave last night.
The pizza delivery man was flung off his bike and landed on the curb.
Netcare 911 paramedics say the man sustained massive head injuries and died on the scene.
