20 casualties injured in M7 Edwin Swales multi-vehicle pile-up

A TWENTY car pile-up has resulted in the closure of the Bluff-bound section of the M7 (Solomon Mahlangu Drive) this morning (Tuesday, 22 January).

Paramedics and emergency services are at the scene, along with police, following the multiple car pile-up.

The multiple accidents took place on the M7 towards Bluff, under the railway bridge just after Southway Mall and before South Coast Road.

Two trucks, four taxis and multiple cars were involved in a series of crashes, resulting in multiple injuries being sustained by at least 20 people.

“The road is closed for now while multiple emergency services attend to the injured patients and while authorities try to clear the roadway of debris,” said Rescue Care Paramedics’ Garrith Jamieson.

Motorists are advised to use alternative routes while the clean-up is underway. It is unclear what led to the multiple as it is.
