A metro police officer is fighting for his life after being hit by a taxi on a busy Johannesburg intersection on Friday morning.

Emer-G-Med operations manager Jurgen Kotze said the officer was on his motorbike at the corner of K101 (Old Pretoria Road) and Allandale Road in Midrand when the taxi slammed into him.

Jurgen said the officer was flown to a nearby hospital in a critical condition.

The taxi driver has since been arrested.

This came an hour after another taxi crashed on the R55 and Allandale Road at 8am. Kotze said multiple patients were injured in that crash.
