Johannesburg - Five people, including a baby, died when an 18-wheel truck crashed into four vehicles in Kibler Park on Monday, said Johannesburg emergency workers.
The vehicles caught fire, said Johannesburg emergency management services spokesman Robert Mulaudzi.
“The five victims were burnt beyond recognition,” he said.
“Seven other people were treated on the scene before being transferred to different hospitals around the city.”
Fire-fighters were still battling to contain the blaze.
Mulaudzi said the truck was not carrying flammable goods. - Sapa
