Johannesburg - A man was killed and five other people were injured on Monday night in a four-vehicle crash on the N4 Bakwena Platinum Highway, the North West Transport Department said.

The accident happened between Mooinooi and Majakaneng at around 8pm, spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said, involving a truck and three cars.

Kgwele advised motorists to use the R512 Old Pretoria-Rustenburg Road as the affected road was expected to be closed for up to four hours.

Full details on the cause of the accident were not immediately available.

Kgwele said rescue personnel had to use the jaws of life to free a seriously injured man who was trapped inside the wreckage of his car.

“Paramedics are still resuscitating the patient,” he said. - Sapa
