An accident late last night on
Camberg Road in Pietermaritzburg left two people dead and thirteen others
injured following a bakkie accident.
ER24 Spokesperson Russel Meiring
said paramedics from the Pietermaritzburg branch arrived on scene and found the
bakkie lying on its side in the middle of the road. The occupants from the
bakkie lay all across the scene.
Meiring added that on assessment,
paramedics found that one woman had sustained fatal injuries in the collision.
Another woman lay near the vehicle with no sign of life.
He emphasized that paramedics
performed advanced life support and CPR for an hour, unfortunately no signs of
life returned and the patient was declared dead on the scene.
“Thirteen other patients sustained
injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Paramedics treated the patients and
thereafter transported them to Northdale Hospital for treatment.” Meiring said.
