Mokopane - Four people were killed and two others were injured when two cars collided, one of them bursting into flame, on the N1 northbound about 15km from Mokopane in Limpopo on Friday afternoon, paramedics said.

ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene to find the two cars on the side of the road. One of the cars was well alight, ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring said.

On closer inspection, medics found that one person had been pulled from the burning car by another motorist. A second injured person was in the other car. Fire services began to extinguish the blaze while medics assessed the two injured people, finding that they had sustained minor to moderate injuries. They were treated and thereafter transported to nearby hospitals for further care.

"Once the burning vehicle had been extinguished, medics found that four people had sustained numerous fatal burn wounds. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead."

The details surrounding the accident were not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations, Meiring said.
