Five people were killed and seven others injured following a three-vehicle collision on the N12 between Potchefstroom in the North West and Fochville in Gauteng on Tuesday afternoon.

Three light motor vehicles were found across the road, while several patients were scattered around the scene.

“On closer inspection medics found two men trapped in different vehicles. Two other men were lying outside the cars. Unfortunately, all four men had already succumbed to their injuries,” ER24 said.

Another patient later succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Seven other patients who had sustained minor to moderate injuries were tended to by medics before being transported to hospitals in Potchefstroom.
