Five people have lost their lives this morning when three cars collided at the intersection of Modderdam Road and 35th Avenue in Bishop Lavis.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks says the deceased are from one car and they were declared dead on the scene.

Banks says other victims were taken to hospital due to their injuries.

“A sixth person in the car survived but was trapped in the vehicle and needed to be extricated by rescue crews,” he said.

Five patients from the other vehicles sustained minor to moderate injuries, of which some also needed to be extricated by rescue crews.

They were taken to various surrounding hospitals for further treatment.

Banks adds the necessary authorities were in attendance and are investigating the incident.
