[MENLYN] – Bakkie rolls killing one, injuring two.
A man was killed and two others injured last night when the bakkie they were travelling in rolled on the Garsfontein Road Bridge in the Menlyn area.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at approximately 22h20, finding the bakkie lying upright against the barriers of the bridge. A man was found lying a few metres away from the vehicle while two others were found walking around on the scene.
Paramedics assessed the patients and found that one man had already succumbed to his numerous injuries. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the man and he was declared dead.
The two other men were assessed and found to have sustained moderate injuries. The men were treated and were thereafter transported to Tshwane District Hospital for further treatment.
Local authorities were on the scene to investigate the exact cause of the collision.
