One man was killed and two others injured on Thursday afternoon when three vehicles collided at the South and Poplar Road intersection in Lindhaven, Roodepoort.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said in a statement that paramedics called to the scene had found three vehicles in the middle of the intersection. One man was dead and another, severely injured man, was trapped in his car. A third person, a woman, was found walking around the scene.

One man believed to be in his 50s was declared dead on the scene.

“Once freed, paramedics treated the man and initiated advanced life support interventions before he was transported to Laratong Hospital for urgent treatment,” Meiring said.

The third person, the woman, was treated for minor injuries on the scene and taken to hospital for further treatment.
