Two people were killed and twelve others injured last night when a truck crashed into a stationary vehicle on the N12 outside of Delmas.
ER24 paramedics, along with several other services, arrived on the scene to find the light motor vehicle lying on its side in the middle of the road while the truck was found a short distance away. Several people were found walking around on the scene.
Medics assessed the patients and found that one woman had sustained numerous fatal injuries. Nothing could be done for her, and she was declared dead.
Thirteen other patients were tended to on the scene. Three were found in a critical condition while ten others were in a serious to minor condition.
Paramedics treated the patients and provided the critically injured with advanced life support interventions. Once treated, the patients were transported to various hospitals for further care.
Unfortunately, on arrival at the hospital, one of the critically injured patients succumbed to their injuries.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known, but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
