Two people died and several others were injured when a VW Polo, a bakkie, and an Audi collided on the R546 near Secunda in Mpumalanga on Saturday, paramedics said.
When ER24 arrived on scene the bakkie was down an embankment, the Polo was in the road, and the Audi was in a stormwater drain, ER24 spokeswoman Ineke van Huyssteen said.
Another medical service on the scene had already declared the two patients dead, she said.
ER24 transported a man, believed to be in his 20s who had sustained serious injuries, to Evander Hospital. Other medical services on the scene transported the rest of the patients to nearby hospitals. The cause of the crash was unknown, Van Huyssteen said.
