A driver died after a truck and a light motor vehicle collided head on along the R59 between Vaal River and Vaalpark during the early hours of Wednesday morning, ER24 Spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.
When paramedics arrived shortly before 1am they found the damaged truck and the wreck of the light motor vehicle.
“The driver of the light motor vehicle was found with fatal injuries. Sadly, there was nothing that paramedics could do for him and he was declared dead on the scene,” said Vermaak.
“Two occupants from the truck were found with moderate injuries. It is understood that they climbed out of the vehicle shortly after the collision. Both were treated for multiple scrapes and bruises before being transported to Mediclinic Emfuleni.”
The cause for the collision is being investigated by authorities.
