Three vehicles collide on the N12 – Kimberley

[Kimberley 2 March 2012 12:00]

A taxi, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla collided with one another on the N12 north outside of the Casino, approximately three kilometers outside of Kimberley.

According to witnesses, the taxi collided into the side of the Nissan Sentra, leaving the woman sitting in the front passenger seat on the side of the impact entrapped in the crumpled metal. The local Fire and Rescue workers had to cut the woman out of the vehicle using the Jaws of Life, and although she had sustained quite severe injuries she was in a stable condition. Paramedics treated her for her injuries while she was being cut from the wreck. The woman aged 45 was taken per ambulance to Kimberley Provincial Hospital for further care. The driver of the Sentra fortunately sustained only minor injuries.

A Toyota Corolla was unable to stop after the initial collision occurred, and the Corolla crashed into the taxi and Sentra. The driver and only occupant of the vehicle, was however not injured and did not require further treatment in hospital.

The nine occupants of the taxi were left with minor to moderate injuries, and after being thoroughly assessed by paramedics, were treated accordingly and taken to Kimberley Provincial Hospital for further care.

The cause of the collision will be investigated by the appropriate authorities.

    After being in a coma, she woke up and could not do anything for herself. I am happy to say that now she can walk, eat by herself and get dressed by herself.
    She still have memory loss, but is getting stronger every day.
    ER24 is doing such a good job, and I would like to thank everybody on behalf of my sister Maria Claassen.
