“On scene, ER24 paramedics found that three males in one of the vehicles had already succumbed to the fatal injuries they sustained,” said ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring.
“Provincial rescue service personnel used jaws-of-life equipment to free the two men who survived the collision from their vehicle.”
The two men were then immobilised on spine boards and treated for the moderate chest and leg injuries, before being taken to a nearby hospital for further treatment.
Meiring said the cause of the accident, which happened on Sunday evening, was not known.
Police were investigating.
