A woman has been killed and nine others  injured following a collision between a bakkie and  a light motor vehicle on the N12, 30 kilometres outside of Potchefstroom.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring reported, on arrival ER24 paramedics found a light motor vehicle and bakkie lying on the side of the road.

The bakkie lay on its side after it rolled multiple times.

On assessment, paramedics found the lifeless body of a woman. Unfortunately the woman had already succumbed to her multiple fatal injuries.

Nothing more could be done for the patient and she was declared dead on the scene, Meiring said.

Nine other patients were found on the scene, including three children, aged two, six, and twelve years.

Paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured patients with advanced life support interventions.
