One person died and two others, including a child, were injured when a bakkie overturned on the R304, near the Lichtenberg Road crossing, at the back of Durbanville.
A lady believed to be in her late twenties, had been ejected from the bakkie and was in a critical condition.
A six year old child and the daughter of the lady who died on scene sustained minor injuries were transported to Tygerberg Hospital.
The driver of the bakkie also sustained minor injuries but refused to be transported to hospital.
ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak said Pieces of sheep were also scattered around the scene but it was soon discovered that the bakkie had been carrying sheep which had already been slaughtered and packed in pieces.
“The cause of the incident is unknown at this stage. The tow-truckers on scene were referring to the incident location as "the crossing of the dead" due to the high incidence of fatalities at the site” he said.
