Emergency services personnel, police and traffic police are at the scene.

The road has been closed to traffic.

SABC News Reporter Pimani Baloyi who is at the scene says, “The weather has been quite cold and foggy so our understanding is that it was also foggy here. So when the taxi was trying to travel towards Bogum and the truck was travelling to Polokwane they collided head-on. There are no survivors at this point. There were 14 occupants in that taxi, and the driver of that truck.”
