This afternoon, three people were killed when a light motor vehicle and a truck collided head-on on the R509 20km outside Derby.
ER24 paramedics arrived at 15h00 to find the truck and car smashed together, well alight.
After the Provincial Fire Services extinguished the blaze, medics found the bodies of a man, woman and young girl inside the car.
Unfortunately, all three patients had already succumbed to their 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.
