At 15h08 on Thursday afternoon Netcare 911 paramedics responded to a collision in the Diepsloot area of Gauteng. Reports from the scene indicate that the truck and car collided head-on, however, the exact cause of the crash and preceding events is still speculative and will form part of the Police investigation.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and found that the three occupants of the truck sustained minor injuries. The driver of the car was still trapped in the wreckage of his car and tragically was declared dead at the scene. The injured were treated at the scene before medics transported them to a local hospital for further care.
