Johannesburg - Two people were killed and three others were seriously injured on Tuesday when a truck collided with a taxi and two other cars near Klerksdorp in the North West, paramedics said.
“A truck lost control and overturned and collided with a minibus taxi and two other oncoming vehicles on the N12,” ER24 said in a statement.
It was believed the initial impact caused the truck to collide with a second car, overturning and spilling its load onto the road near Alabama.
When paramedics, fire fighters and other services arrived on the scene they found that a total of four vehicles were involved.
The injured were taken to hospital.
Police and traffic officials were investigating.
The province's public safety and liaison MEC, Nono Maloyi, appealed to motorist travelling on the N12 to be patient while authorities cleared the road.
