[EMBALENHLE] Two collisions at the R546 intersection two hours apart

Two separate light motor-vehicle collisions occurred at the same four-way stop on the R546, Embalenhle in Mpumalanga last night, just hours apart.

The first collision, a rear-end between two VW Polos, happened at around 21:45 last night. Seven people were injured in the incident. ER24 treated and transported two adult females and three children between the ages of 3 and 10 to the hospital for minor injuries from the white Polo. One adult and one child from the second Polo were treated and transported to the hospital for minor injuries by another private service on the scene.

The second collision, a head-on between a Polo and a Kia, happened just after midnight this morning. Three people were left with moderate injuries in this incident. ER24 treated and transported the male driver of the Polo to the hospital for further care. The male driver of the Kia was found entrapped in the vehicle and was extracted by the Fire Department before being treated and transported to the hospital by provincial services. The female passenger from the same vehicle was treated and transported by another private service on the scene.

Both law enforcement and the Fire Department were on-scene for investigations at both incidents.
