A man in his late 30s has lost his life and three others have been injured, one critically, in a single-vehicle rollover on the N17 in Trichardt, Mpumalanga this afternoon.
ER24 paramedics were first on the scene at 14:24. A light motor vehicle was found some 50 meters into the veld on its roof and the four occupants sitting beside it. The man in his late 30s and a 34-year-old woman had suffered critical injuries and were treated with Advanced Life Support interventions and transported to Evander Provincial Hospital. The man succumbed to his various injuries upon arrival at the hospital and a resuscitation by the hospital’s doctors was unfortunately unsuccessful. He was declared dead by the doctors on hand.
Two other men in their 30s were found to have suffered moderate injuries in the rollover and were treated and transported to Evander Provincial Hospital by another private service on the scene.
The Fire Department as well as the SAPS were also on the scene for further investigations.
