Last night, one man was killed and four others injured when a small truck and a bakkie collided at the R23/Boland Road in Brakpan.

ER24 and other services arrived shortly after 22h00 to find the truck and bakkie in the middle of the road. A man was found lying motionless in the small truck while a woman, a man and two children, a boy (3) and a girl (10), were found seated near the bakkie.

Medics assessed the patients and found that the man in the truck had sustained fatal injuries. Nothing could be done, and he was declared dead. The woman had sustained critical injuries while the man and children had sustained minor to moderate injuries.

The patients were treated, and the woman provided advanced life support interventions before being transported to a nearby hospital for further care.

Local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
