A Verulam taxi operator has defied all popular belief and squeezed thirty adult men and women into a Toyota Hi-Ace on Thursday evening. This all before he rolled the vehicle on Verulam Main Road this evening.
The taxi rolled several times before coming to rest on its side in the middle of the road. The cause of the accident is unknown.
The rolling vehicle spilled its occupants onto the roadway, with some being thrown down an embankment that lies adjacent to the road.
All sustained serious injuries and Netcare911 Paramedics summoned ambulances from adjacent districts to aid at the accident.
They were treated and stabilised at the scene by Paramedics before they were transported to hospitals and clinics in the area for the care they required.
