One woman died after the Nissan Sentra she was driving collided into the side of a Mercedes Sprinter, at the intersection of the R102 and Macassar Road, in Firgrove this morning.
ER 24 spokesperson Tristan Wadely say there were numerous occupants in the sprinter but nine were taken to Vergelegen Medi-Clinic by ER24 and Metro EMS ambulances.
One patient sustained serious injuries and the remaining patients sustained minor to moderate injuries. The deceased lady is believed to be the only occupant of the Sentra.
Meanwhile six people were injured when the taxi they were travelling in overturned.
The incident happened at the intersection of Modderdam Road and Belrail Road in Bellville at around 15h00.
Wadely says the patients sustained minor to moderate injuries.
It is believed that a tyre burst on the vehicle which caused it to overturn.
