An Australian taxi driver has been charged following a horrific crash in South Australia which proved a lucky escape for all six vehicle occupants.

Just after 2am on Wednesday 1 September, police and paramedics were called to the junction of Seaford Road and Main South Road in Old Noarlunga after a vehicle collided with the brick wall of a business.

One occupant was trapped and had to be cut from the vehicle while paramedics treated five other occupants at the scene.

Two 16-year-old girls and an 18-year-old woman were taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital and a 14-year-old boy and 26-year-old man were taken to the Flinders Medical Centre. All injuries are considered non-life threatening at this time.

The driver, a 20-year-old Klemzig man, was also taken to the Flinders Medical Centre with minor injuries. He has since been arrested and charged with four counts of cause harm by dangerous driving and refuse breath analysis. He was bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates' Court on 10 November.

South Australia Police are now asking for witnesses of the crash or anyone that saw the taxi driving prior to the incident to contact them.
