At least seven people were burnt beyond recognition and died after the taxi they were travelling in crashed into a truck along the N1 in Limpopo on Sunday morning.The provincial health department has confirmed that a forensics team is now combing through the wreckage. The highway, between Kranskop and Mookgophong, was closed to allow the officials to work, provincial transport and community safety department spokesperson Matome Moremi-Tauatsoala said. In September, over 40 people died in separate accidents within a 20km radius of the current scene. Those who perished include 11 Malawian tourists, who were on their way to Durban when their bus was involved in an accident. Last week, Transport Minister Blade Nzimande announced a R4bn investment to improve the N1 between the Kranskop toll plaza and Makhado.Speaking during the launch of the festive season road safety campaign in Modimolle, Nzimande had visited a section of the N1 along with officials and religious leaders to cleanse the road, which is notorious for fatal crashes.We are to close the N1 for at least 4 hours. Those traveling from Polokwane, please off Ramp at Mookgophong to use R101 and those traveling from Gauteng, traffic officers will direct you to off Ramp at Kranskop to Modimolle. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.— Limpopo Transport (@TransportLimCom) November 25, 2018Urgent Message : N1 between Modimolle and Mookgophong is open for Traffic again. Motorists can now go back to N1 to off load the heavy traffic volume on R101.@_ArriveAlive @DoTransport@rtia_aarto— Limpopo Transport (@TransportLimCom) November 25, 2018
