Last night, four people were injured, including two children, when a light motor vehicle and a truck collided on the N12, approximately 30km outside Potchefstroom.

ER24 and other services arrived at 19h44 to find the truck and car parked on the road. A woman in her 60s was found in the car while a 2-year-old girl and 11-year-old girl were seated outside. A 35-year-old woman was seen walking around.

Medics assessed the patients and found a 2-year-old and a woman in her 60s was in a serious condition, while the 11-year-old and 35-year-old had sustained moderate injuries.

The patients were treated and the two seriously injured were provided with pain-relief medication before they were transported before being transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
