One child killed, another seriously injured after taxi knock-over on Sweetwaters road in Pietermaritzburg


A boy, believed to be 7-years-old, was killed and another child was seriously injured after being knocked over by a taxi on Sweetwaters road in Pietermaritzburg this afternoon.
When ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene just after 16H00, they found a boy lying on the side of the road. Unfortunately, the boy sustained fatal injuries and was declared dead at the scene by ER24. It is believed that another child was seriously injured but was transported to hospital privately before ER24’s arrival.
The exact details surrounding the incident were not yet known to our paramedics, but the police were on the scene for further investigations.
