One person is in a critical condition and three others sustained moderate injuries after a car lost control at high speed and rolled into a wall on South Africa Drive in Cosmo City in the early hours of this morning.

Emer-G-Med paramedics attended the scene at around 4.30am. Provincial services were also on the scene.

Spokesperson for Emer-G-Med Max Cohen said, “On assessment, paramedics found that all the car’s occupants had managed to get out of the vehicle.
