A number of people were injured on Friday after five cars crashed on R554 in southern Johannesburg.

The accident involved two BMWs, a state car Toyota Etios driven by a police officer, a Haval H1 and a taxi with a full load of passengers.

According to eyewitnesses, the red Haval failed to drive, causing four other cars to collide with each other.

The 53-year-old Paseka Mokebe, who was driving a silver BMW that was also involved in the crash, told News24 that it all happened very quickly.

He said all he remembers is seeing the red car lose control and colliding with it.

Mokebe was also surprised by the scale of the crash, as he never thought a single car could cause such chaos.

“I don’t understand if it seemed that the driver of the red car quarreled with another passenger, because I only saw the car lose control and suddenly collided with mine,” Sekele said.

Mokebe said that after realizing that his passenger was all right, he immediately went to check the loaded taxi, which also collided with his car.

“Realizing that I had received a minor scratch, I rushed to the taxi and the taxi driver seemed to be stuck. Then we started to help the passengers inside, who looked seriously injured. “

Given the severity of the accident, Mokebe said the Haval driver was not driving below the 80-kilometer speed.

One of the tow truck drivers, who arrived at the scene, told News24 that by the time the paramedics arrived, they were already providing assistance to the victims.

“We provided medical assistance to the injured passengers in the taxi. The Haval driver, including her passenger, seemed to have been seriously injured.

The accident also baffled other drivers about how one car leaving another lane affects so many cars.

According to the tow truck, during the search for the victims, medics found the Haval engine a few meters from the car.
