Three killed in multiple crash

Johannesburg – On Tuesday morning three men were killed and 11 others injured when a bakkie, taxi, and car collided in Bapsfontein on the R25.

In a statement ER24 paramedics said they found a wrecked bakkie in the middle of the road, a car on fire, and a taxi parked nearby.

“The fire service extinguished the fire while paramedics attended to the patients. The medics found a man trapped inside the bakkie, while another was trapped inside the smouldering car. Unfortunately, both had already succumbed to their injuries and they were declared dead,” ER24 said.

Five of those injured were in critical condition.

“Paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured with advanced life support interventions. Unfortunately, one of the critically injured men succumbed to injuries and was pronounced dead. One critically injured patient was airlifted to hospital while the remaining patients were transported by ambulance,” the medics said.

Police are investigating the deadly accident.
