One dead, seven injured in a collision



One person has been killed and seven others were left injured on Sunday evening after three vehicles collided on the N4 in Rustenburg.

ER24 spokesperson, Russel Meiring said paramedics arrived on the scene and found three light motor vehicles completely blocking the road.

“Debris from the vehicles were speckled across the road. Upon closer inspection, paramedics found one man lying trapped inside his light motor vehicle. The man was assessed and found to have sustained numerous injuries. He showed no signs of life and unfortunately, nothing could be done.

“He was declared dead on the scene and seven other patients from the three vehicles were ferried to various hospitals. One of the injured was a young child.

Paramedics assessed the patients and found that their injuries ranged from minor to moderate,”Meiring said.

He said rescue services had to use specialised rescue equipment to later free the deceased from the vehicle. The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.”
