A woman was killed and two men seriously injured when the car they were travelling in overturned and rolled on the N12 near Witbank, Mpumalanga, paramedics said on Saturday.

On Friday night, the driver apparently lost control of the car and it rolled several times before coming to rest on its roof, said Netcare 911 spokesman Jeffrey Wicks.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and found the woman, a passenger, had sustained critical injuries and died on the scene.

The two men were treated at the scene before being taken to hospital. - Sapa
