A 2-YEAR-OLD child was among three people injured when a minibus and a motor vehicle collided at a busy intersection in Plattekloof – killing one man.

Shortly after 11am on Saturday paramedics were called to a scene at the corner of Giel Basson Drive and Bosmansdam Road and found a minibus on its side on the pavement while the car lay on the side of the road.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said one man died and three others were injured.

“A man was found lying in the minibus while three men, a woman and a 2-year-old girl, were found seated near the car,” he said.

“Medics assessed the patients and found that the man inside the minibus had already succumbed to his numerous injuries. Nothing could be done for him, and he was declared dead.

“The woman, man and child, were found with moderate injuries, while the two other men had sustained minor injuries.”

Meiring said medics at the scene treated the patients before transporting them to nearby hospitals for further care.

“The men with minor injuries declined transportation to a hospital. Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations,” he added.
