Johannesburg - A 15-year-old boy was killed when a car overturned on the N14 in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, on Thursday, paramedics said.

Two children were ejected from the car in the accident around 1.30pm near Malibongwe Drive, Netcare 911 spokeswoman Santi Steinmann said.

“Tragically one of the children, aged 15, lost his life due to the extensive injuries he had sustained.”

Another boy, aged between seven and nine, and a woman, were seriously injured. They were treated on the scene before being taken to a nearby hospital. Steinmann could not confirm whether the three were related.
