Four people were killed and six injured after two vehicles collided on the N12 between Klerksdorp and Potchefstroom, ER24 paramedics said on Sunday.
“Paramedics found the bodies of three adults and a young child, all lying in the one vehicle,” said ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring in a statement.
“Unfortunately, all four patients had sustained fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead on the scene.”
Six other people were treated on the scene for injuries ranging from minor to moderate. They were later taken to hospital for further treatment.
The cause of the accident is being investigated.
