Johannesburg – Two six-year-old boys were killed on Symphony Way in Belville, Cape Town, on Saturday night, paramedics said.

ER 24 spokesman Werner Vermaak said when paramedics arrived they found people standing around the lifeless bodies of the boys.

“On further assessment they (paramedics) found that both boys sustained severe fatal injuries. Unfortunately, there was nothing that paramedics could do for them and they were declared dead on the scene,” he said.

“It is understood from bystanders that a station wagon was travelling along Symphony Way and collided with the boys on the side of the road.”

Vermaak said the paramedics could not locate the driver of the car.

The family members of the boys were called to the scene before the paramedics arrived, he said.

The accident was handed over to the police to investigate. – Sapa
