A woman has burnt to death after she lost control of her car and crashed into a tree about 15km outside George on the Harold’s Bay Road.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks says paramedics from George rushed to the scene and found the car complete engulfed in flames.

“The local Fire Department was quick to arrive on the scene and were able to extinguishing the blaze. Unfortunately the driver who was entrapped inside the vehicle had perished in the blaze.

“Extrication equipment was used to remove the body from the burn out vehicle. It is believed that the woman lost control while negotiating a corner and crashed into a tree, said Banks.

He says members of public who were on the scene when emergency personnel arrived said that they tried to free the woman but were unable to because she was entrapped and the flames and heat were too severe.

“The local authorities were on the scene and would be investigating the incident further, said Banks.
