“Emergency personnel arrived on the scene and found the bakkie with the occupants strewn across the road,” Banks said.

“Paramedics assessed the patients and found that three people had already succumbed to their injuries and were declared deceased on scene.”

Another person sustained very serious and traumatic injuries and had to be airlifted to hospital.

One more person was rushed to hospital with suspected neck and back injuries, multiple cuts and abrasions, he added.

“It is unclear what caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle but the necessary authorities were on the scene and would investigate the accident further,” said Banks. - Sapa
