“Ten people have been confirmed dead in an accident involving three taxis in Port Shepstone. Currently, the MEC for Transport is on his way to the scene of the accident. At this stage, it is not clear what the possible cause of the accident is. but we believe that one of the drivers lost control which resulted to the two taxis colliding. We are still going to get more details and be able to share with the viewers.”
