Cape town - Thirty people were injured when the bakkie they were in rolled off the R44 near Worcester on Sunday.
A canopy on the back of the vehicle broke as the vehicle rolled down an embankment. Passengers were scattered and several motorists stopped to assist.
Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said four people sustained critical injuries, seven were seriously injured and 19 sustained minor injuries.
The cause of the crash is believed to have been a blow-out on the back left tyre.
Western Cape Emergency Medical Services’ Angelique Jordaan said she could not confirm the condition of the injured passengers and driver at the time of publication.
The crash happened 13km away from Worcester, on the road towards Hermon.
This is the second crash this year in the Wellington area in which more than two dozen people have been injured.
In March, one person died and 24 were injured when they were flung from a truck which overturned on a gravel road near the town.
In that instance a faulty hand brake and shock absorbers, combined with the poor road, led to the incident.
