[BAINSVLEI] – Two killed, five injured in two-vehicle collision.
Two people were killed and five others injured late last night following a two-vehicle collision on Dealsville Road in Bainsvlei, Free State.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene shortly after 23h30 to find the Provincial and another service already in attendance. Two vehicles were found in the middle of the road.
On closer inspection, paramedics found two people lying trapped inside one of the vehicles. Unfortunately, both patients had already succumbed to their injuries. Nothing could be done for them and they were declared dead on the scene.
Five other patients were tended to. Two had sustained serious injuries while three others had sustained minor to moderate injuries.
The patients were treated for their injuries and were thereafter transported by other services to Pelonomi Provincial hospital for further care.
The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
