ACCIDENT IN A CAPE TOWN TAXI
A spokeswoman for the City of Cape Town's Traffic Services, Kevin Jacobs, has confirmed that a cab flipped, and he has also reported that the right incoming lane of Nelson Mandela Boulevard has been closed.
According to Jacobs, 23 people were hurt in the collision, and three of them are in critical condition. At 13:15 he announced, "There are no deaths at this stage." The emergency response team from Cape Town, South Africa's capital city, is present.
Clearly, this is a work in progress. South Africa has contacted the Western Cape EMS for comment, which will be included whenever available.
