Six people have died while six others were injured in a head-on collision on the N1 near Edenburg about 90 kilometers from Bloemfontein last night.

Netcare 911 paramedics Spokesperson Chris Botha said when they arrived at the scene and found the roadway severely obstructed with accident wreckage consistent with a high impact collision and the crumpled remains of the vehicles, some of the injured were still trapped in the debris.

Botha added that after triaging the patients it was found that five adults and a baby had tragically died before their arrival, four were in a critical condition while two miraculously escaped with minor injuries.

Paramedics stabilised the injured on scene before they were transported to various hospitals for further they required.

Exact detail to the cause of the accident and preceding events will remain a subject for police investigation.
