Two people were killed this morning when their vehicle crashed through several trees and a fence of a primary school on Durban Road in Durbanville‚ Cape Town.

The vehicle was found mangled and hanging between the fence and trees on the school’s property shortly after 4am on Friday‚ by paramedics from ER24 as well as Metro Rescue Services.

The two occupants of the vehicle sustained fatal injuries. They were declared dead on the scene after local Metro Rescue and Fire Services stabilised the vehicle in order for paramedics to gain access.

ER24 said the rescue services had to use heavy duty equipment to remove the vehicle from the property in order to ensure the area was safe before the school opened this morning.

"The exact cause of the incident is not yet known. Local authorities will conduct an investigation into the exact cause."
