Four people were killed when their bakkie overturned at Madwaleni in the Eastern Cape, Arrive Alive said on Friday.

The driver of the bakkie failed to negotiate a bend and lost control of the vehicle on Thursday afternoon, spokesman Tshepo Machaea said.

Four people died on the scene and six were seriously injured. Madwaleni is about 30km south-east of Elliotdale.

"It is alleged that those who were injured and killed were seated at the back of the bakkie," said Machaea.
