Two people have been killed and two others critically injured following a two-vehicle collision between two bakkies at the N12 and R28 in Westonaria.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find two wrecked bakkies lying in the middle of the intersection.

Upon closer inspection, paramedics discovered the bodies of a man and woman lying trapped inside one of the bakkies.

Paramedics assessed both patients and found that they had already succumbed to their multiple injuries. Nothing more could be done for them and they were declared dead.

Two other patients, from the second bakkie, had already been transported by provincial services prior to the arrival of ER24. Both patients had been reported to be in a critical condition.

The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
