Two people were killed after light motor vehicle collided with a truck on the N12, four kilometres outside Potchefstroom.

ER24 Spokesperson, Annine Dormehl, said paramedics were called to the scene at 5:30 this morning.

“At the time of their arrival, there was nothing ER24 paramedics could do for the patients and both a male and female were declared dead on the scene. The Jaws of Life had to be used by the local fire department to remove the patients from the vehicle.

It is believed that the collision took place as the truck crossed the N12 to get to a petrol station.”

Dormehl says local authorities will be conducting an investigation into the collision.
