ER24 paramedics rushed to an accident scene
whereby two vehicles collided head on into one another on the N14 between
Ventersdorp and Krugerdorp this afternoon.
ER24 Spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said it
appears that a cause of the crash was as a result of zero visibility on the
stretch of road due to a veld fire in the area.
Jackson added that when
they arrived on scene they found that five people in the sedan had sustained severe
injuries and sadly there was nothing they could do to save their lives and all
five adult patients were declared dead on scene.
She said there had been two adults and a seven year
old little girl travelling in the bakkie, and paramedics immediately initiated
treatment on them due to severe injuries that they had sustained.
The little girl had suffered a broken leg
and was transported by ambulance to Leratong hospital. The third patient who
was travelling in the bakkie was in a stable condition and was also taken to
hospital by ambulance," Jackson added.
"The woman was found trapped in the wreckage
and she had sustained the most serious injuries of the three. While she was being
removed from the wreckage,ER24 was called to the scene and she was airlifted to
Life Fourways hospital in a critical condition. She died on hospital.
The exact details of the cause of the
accident and preceding events will remain a subject of police investigation.
