The driver of a bakkie sustained fatal injuries in a collision with a truck on the R42 just outside of Delmas this afternoon.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly before 17h00, they found GPG already in attendance. Upon further assessment, they found a wrecked bakkie in the road and a truck standing partially off the roadway. The driver of the bakkie was still entrapped but was, unfortunately, showing no signs of life. The driver was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.
The truck driver sustained minor injuries but declined to be transported to the hospital.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are not known to our paramedics, but local authorities were in attendance.
