Four men were killed this morning when the truck they were traveling in crashed into the side of a larger truck on the R24 in Tarlton, Johannesburg.
ER24 paramedics, along with the City of Johannesburg EMS, arrived on the scene at 07h58 to find the tipper truck in the middle of the road while the larger truck was found parked a short distance away. The cab of the tipper truck had been completely ripped off in the collision.
On closer inspection, medics found two men lying trapped inside the cab of the tipper truck while two others were found lying a short distance away. Unfortunately, all four men had already succumbed to their numerous injuries. Nothing could be done for them, and they were declared dead.
The driver of the larger truck was assessed and found to have escaped injury.
Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
