One man died and another sustained moderate injuries in an accident on the R38 Barberton late last night.

It is understood the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit a tree. ER24 Spokesperson Chitra Bodasing says the exact cause of the accident is unknown, however authorities were on scene for further investigations.

Bodasing says when ER24 paramedics, provincial and other services arrived on the scene, they found car parts lying all over the area.

The car was in a bush on the other side of the road. The driver of the vehicle, believed to be 29-years-old, was trapped in the vehicle.

Bodasing says the man was assessed, unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do for him he was declared dead. Fire and Rescue services used the Jaws of Life to extricate him from the vehicle.

Bodasing added that the passenger believed to be 32 years of age, was assessed and treated for moderate injuries and transported to the Barberton Medi clinic for further medical care
