One person was killed late last night following a head-on collision between a truck and light motor vehicle on the R39, approximately 20km outside of Ermelo in Mpumalanga.
ER24 paramedics, along with the Fire Services, arrived on the scene to find a light motor vehicle on the side of the road. The vehicle had burst into flame and was well alight.
Fire services had to extinguish the flames before paramedics could excess the vehicle.
Once the flames had been extinguished, paramedics found the body of the driver lying trapped inside the vehicle. Unfortunately, nothing could be done by paramedics and the person was declared dead.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
