[N4] Four killed, three injured in collision
Four people sustained fatal injuries and three others sustained minor injuries in a collision between a truck and a light motor vehicle on the N4 before the Sudwala offramp in Mpumalanga this evening.
When ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene shortly before 18h30, they found a vehicle slightly wedged underneath the front of the truck and four patients found stuck inside the vehicle. Three had sustained fatal injuries, while one was found to be in a critical condition. Despite the best efforts of all involved, the critically injured patient’s vital signs rapidly diminished and she was declared dead shortly afterwards.
The truck driver and his two passengers had sustained minor injuries, but they declined to be transported to the hospital.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident were not known to our paramedics, but local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
