An 80-year old has died, while two others have been injured, in a car accident in Caledon Street, Uitenhage on Monday morning.

Police Spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Gerda Swart told Algoa FM News that a mini bus taxi, with a driver and a passenger, had allegedly hit an Opel Astra and then drove into a wall.

The bus then caught alight and burst into flames, while community members came to their helping.

Both the driver and the passenger were taken to hospital in a critical condition.

The elderly, who was a passenger in the Opel, was tossed out of the vehicle and had died on the scene. The driver was taken to hospital for check-ups.
