A child of 10 has died and five adults have been injured, two of them seriously, in a collision between their Toyota Avanza and a delivery truck at the intersection of Poplar and Progress roads in Lindhaven, Krugersdorp this evening.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at 19:51 along with the Community Police and another private emergency service. Most of the adults from the Avanza had self-extricated themselves. The child was found still in the vehicle showing no signs of life. Nothing could be done for her and she was unfortunately declared dead on arrival.
Two adult males believed to be in their 20s had suffered serious injuries and required Advanced Life Support interventions before being transported to hospital. One female believe to be in her 30s had suffered moderate injuries and was also treated and transported by ER24 to the hospital. Two further adult males had suffered minor injuries and were treated and transported by the other service on scene.
Three people from the truck allegedly fled the scene. The Metro police were on the scene for investigations however.
