Yesterday morning, a man and woman were killed when their light motor vehicle slammed into a truck on the R38, approximately 10km outside Bethal.
ER24 and other services arrived on the scene at 03h50 to find a wrecked light motor vehicle in one road lane. The truck had come to a stop on the side of the road.
On closer inspection, medics found a man and woman lying trapped inside the car. Unfortunately, both patients had already succumbed to their numerous injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead.
The driver of the truck, fortunately, escaped injury.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
