ER24 paramedics arrived at the scene to find the factory first aid provider in attendance.
The details surrounding this incident are unknown to first responders.
According to first responders, a car had “somehow lost control” and knocked over two children, aged six and eight, on the side of the road.
Although he had been freed by coworkers, he had sustained major head injuries and there was nothing more paramedics could do.
The two cars had left the road and were found 40 metres apart – one on its roof.
The driver of the sedan died at the scene, while the other died in hospital due to the severity of his injuries.
