Five persons sustained injuries ranging from moderate to serious after this heavy goods truck carrying iron ore overturned on the N8 between Bloemfontein and Petrusburg late yesterday evening.

Patients were treated on scene for their injuries before they were all transported to Pelonomi Hospital in Bloemfontein for further care.

Traffic flow was disrupted for several hours as the truck blocked most of the roadway.

Various services attended the scene
