Cape Town - Two people were killed and five injured in two separate accidents near Worcester in the Western Cape on Saturday, paramedics said.
Paramedics were called to Robertson Road at around 4am after a BMW crashed into a bakkie, ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said.
A security guard had stopped to assist a man who had broken down and while they were standing on the side of the road the BMW crashed into the security bakkie.
The owner of the broken down vehicle was killed and the security guard and BMW driver were injured. Both were taken to nearby hospitals.
In a separate accident a man was killed and two people and a baby injured when a truck carrying wine from Johannesburg overturned on the N1 at Townsriver, said Jackson.
The driver, a woman and her baby were injured.
“Another man was found on the scene but it is not clear as to whether he too had been an occupant of the truck or as to whether he was a pedestrian,” said Jackson.
The man was declared dead on the scene and the injured taken to hospital.
Police would investigate both accidents. - Sapa
