A man in his 50s has died in a head-on collision between the bakkie he was driving and a truck on the R42 in Delmas this morning.

ER24 paramedics were on scene at 11:41. The truck had apparently collided with the bakkie some 50 meters down the road and had pushed the bakkie over the trailer it had been towing. The entrapped driver of the bakkie had unfortunately already succumbed to his fatal injuries and was declared dead on arrival. The driver of the truck was found walking around on the scene – he had suffered minor injuries and was treated and transported through to a private hospital for further care.

The Fire Department arrived to extract the driver and the scene was handed over to the South African Police Services.
