Cape Town, South Africa — Nine people, including a six-year-old girl, were injured on Monday afternoon in a six car pile-up in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni metro police said.
A 62-year-old driver of a Toyota Conquest slowed down on Parkland Street at 2pm after thick smoke slightly obscured her vision, said spokesperson Kobeli Mokheseng. The smoke came from a veld fire near the road.
“Police believe that the driver of the second car N a Ford Bantam – did not see the Conquest and hit it from the back,” said Mokheseng.
Four other cars on the same road were also involved in the pile up.
