Johannesburg - A man and his three-year-old son died and a woman was injured when their car was struck from the side by a truck between Trichardt and Kriel in Mpumalanga, paramedics said on Thursday.

“ER24 paramedics and other rescue services from the area responded to the call at around 7pm (on Wednesday) where they found the three occupants,” said ER24 spokesman Christo Venter.

“The man and child had to be declared deceased on the scene before they were extricated from the badly damaged wreck.”

The 20-year-old woman was taken to hospital.

“According to witnesses, the passenger vehicle failed to stop at a crossing when the truck collided (with) them,” said Venter. - Sapa
