Cape Town - Three people died and three others were injured when three vehicles collided on Sir Lowry's Pass near Gordons Bay in the Western Cape on Wednesday, paramedics said.

“One of the vehicles attempted to overtake and then crashed head-on with another vehicle, flipping the car on top of the other on the N2 just before the lookout point,” ER24 spokesman Christo Venter said.

Two adults and a child were declared dead on the scene. One of the occupants sustained critical injuries and was airlifted to hospital.

Two others suffered moderate injuries and were taken to the Helderberg Provincial Hospital by ambulance.
