Elandshoek - Six people were killed in a head-on collision on the N4 between Ngodwana and Elandshoek on Monday, the Mpumalanga community safety department said.
Three men and three women travelling in a bakkie were killed when they collided with an articulated truck, spokesman Joseph Mabuza said in a statement.
“Three people survived from the truck and they did not sustain any injuries.”
Community safety MEC Vusi Shongwe called for police to urgently investigate the crash and for drivers to be vigilant.
Shongwe sent his condolences to the families of those killed.
“The MEC said by punishing reckless drivers, the government will be sending strong messages to reckless drivers and this will assist in making the roads safer,” Mabuza said.
