Five people were injured when a Fiat Uno and Toyota bakkie crashed on Jip De Jager Road at the N1 on ramp in Bellville yesterday evening.

The driver and passenger of the Uno were mechanically trapped in the vehicle and needed to be cut free by the Fire Department using the 'Jaws of Life',” said ER24’s Tristan Wadely

“All the patients sustained moderate injuries and were in a stable condition, the patients were taken by ER24 and Metro EMS ambulances to various surrounding hospitals,”said Wadely

“It is alleged that the Uno was travelling down Jip De Jager Road towards Voortrekker Road, when the bakkie attempted to turn onto the N1 on ramp from the opposite direction, causing the Uno to 'T-bone' the bakkie,” said Wadely

Peak hour traffic was badly affected by the accident, SAPS and traffic department were also in attendance.
