BREAKING: 14 killed in Shaka's Head accident

At least 14 people have been killed in an horrific accident in Shaka's Head near Ballito.


Emergency Services say a taxi plunged off a bridge and crashed onto a railway line below. 

The minibus was then hit by a train.

Netcare 911's Chris Botha says the accident happened near the N2 highway.

"The vehicle actually broke up and we found accident debris and people spread over quite a large area. One person was found in a critical condition and 6 others sustained very serious injuries.

"SAPS is on the scene as well as the fire department and the various medical emergency services. This will remain a problem for quite some time until investigations are concluded," he said.
