Child among those injured in Bloemfontein crash

A young child was among those injured in an accident on the N1 North of Bloemfontein on Saturday evening.

ER24 spokesperson, Ross Campbell, says the child was among eight passengers when their SUV rolled yesterday.

He says ER24 arrived on the scene at 18:35 and discovered all the passengers lying on the ground outside the vehicle.

He adds that three were found to have suffered serious injuries, while the others, including the child, had suffered minor injuries.

Campbell further says two of the adults were women, while the rest were all men.

The injured were treated and transported by Provincial Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and ER24 paramedics to a private hospital in the area.

“The South African Police Services (SAPS), as well as the Traffic and Fire Departments, were also on the scene for further investigations,” he adds.
