[DE DOORNS] Five killed, six injured in vehicle rollover
Five people were killed, and six others were left injured following a single-vehicle rollover on the N1 in De Doorns last night.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene at approximately 23h00, they found patients lying across the road and a vehicle off the roadway. Upon further assessment, paramedics found three people who had sustained fatal injuries and were declared dead at the scene.
Six other patients were found in a critical condition, while another two had sustained serious injuries. Advanced life support interventions were immediately initiated, but unfortunately, despite the best efforts of all involved, two of the critically injured patients also succumbed to their numerous injuries.
ER24 paramedics, Metro EMS and two other medical services at the scene treated the patients and transported them to hospital for further medical care.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident are not known to our paramedics.
