Fatal head on collision between bakkie and a truck on m61 highway:
Yesterday evening (07 October) on the m61 highway, Vereeniging road, a truck and bakkie were involved in a head on collision at 18H:55. The five occupants who were on board the bakkie had a fatal and extensive injuries.
Netcare 911 Mr Shawn Herbst told the Reporter that the medics (Netcare 911) arrived at the scene and assessed the occupants and realised that, the three personnel had sustained some major injuries.
Some occupants of the bakkie were treated on scene by Netcare medics and once they were stabilised they were transported to hospital. Unfortunately, three of the occupants were declared deceased on the scene, while others are still in hospital and being treated.
As we concluded Mr Shawn Herbst sadly mentioned that it is still unclear what led to collision between the bakkie and truck.
