Johannesburg - Four men were killed on Friday in a head-on collision on the N12 near Carletonville, Gauteng paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha said a bakkie, with two men, and a car with two men, collided head-on around 6am.

“The N12 has been closed off for forensic investigations. This is the area right opposite the Kloof mine.”

Botha said all four men were declared dead on the scene.

“Jaws of life were used to extract their bodies from the wreckages.” - Sapa
