Four people were killed this morning and another was injured after a truck and light motor vehicle collided on the N1 just about 40km outside of Bloemfontein.
ER24 spokesperson, Russel Meiring, told OFM News when the paramedics, provincial fire and EMS arrived on the scene they found the two vehicles on the same side of the road. He explained that four bodies, believed to be two men and two women, were trapped inside the light motor vehicle.
Meiring says, unfortunately, all four patients had already succumbed to their injuries. He says the female passenger from the truck was assessed on the scene and found only to have minor injuries. She was transported to Pelonomi Provincial Hospital for further care.
The details surrounding the accident is not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
