Ten people were killed and 17 others injured when a taxi overturned in Stutterheim in the Eastern Cape.
Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) spokesman Ashref Ismael said on Sunday that a Toyota Quantum was travelling from Stutterheim to King William's Town when the driver lost control and the vehicle rolled.
"It then collided with a Toyota Avanza which was travelling in the opposite direction. The Avanza then collided with a VW minibus," he said.
The accident occurred 3km from Stutterheim around 7pm on Saturday.
Ismail said 10 people died in the collision and 17 were injured. Of the 17, nine were critically injured and eight sustained minor injuries. Five of the injured were later released from hospital.
The RTMC was investigating a case of culpable homicide.
