City of Cape Town’s Traffic Spokesman Kevin Jacobs said they are still waiting for more information about the accident. He confirmed that the paramedics are still on the scene treating some people.
“Two far left lanes obstructed, emergency services are on scene. Waiting for further information on the accident scene,” he said.
