Two men were killed, and four others injured with a vehicle rolled on the N11 this afternoon.

“ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find a transport vehicle lying upright down a steep embankment,” said ER24 spokesperson, Russel Meiring.

The occupants were reportedly found lying ‘scattered’ around the mangled wreck.

“On assessment, paramedics found that [the] two men showed no signs of life. Unfortunately nothing could be done for these patients, and they were declared dead on scene.”

Four other patients were treated on scene, one of them critically injured.

“Paramedics immediately began their treatment of the patients and provided them with advanced life support interventions,” said Mr Meiring.

They were stablised, before being transported to various hospitals for urgent treatment.

“The cause of the collision is not yet known but local authorities were on scene for further investigations,” he concluded.

Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
