Two people died and six others injured in a collision between a bakkie and a car on the N12. The accident took place 5km outside Kimberley late last night.
ER24 paramedics and other services arrived on scene and found the vehicles in the veld on either side of the road.
One person was trapped in the bakkie and other patients were found scattered around the scene.
