Two people have died and two others injured after a truck and car collided at the intersection of Oswald Pirow Street and the turn-off from the N1, in the Cape Town CBD this afternoon.

ER24 spokesperson Tristan Wadeley says the truck collided into the left side of the car, which resulted in the death of both the left front and rear passenger.

“Two other occupants of the car sustained moderate injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital for further medical treatment.

“The reason for the collision is unknown at this stage but the incident is being investigated by the police,” said Wadeley.

Meanwhile Wadeley added that a waste technician, believed to be in his late thirties, was killed in an accident that occurred in Uitsig, Durbanville.

“It is alleged that the man was giving the waste removal truck a guide while it reversed. The man is believed to have then tripped and fell, which resulted in the truck riding over him.

“When paramedics arrived on the scene they found the man lying next to the back of the truck, he had sustained severe trauma and was sadly already dead,” said Wadeley.

Police were in attendance and are investigating the incident.
