One person dead in Limpopo truck crash

A man died when a truck crashed off the R71 Magoebaskloof and off an embankment outside of Tzaneen in Limpopo on Friday, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Russel Meiring said paramedics and fire services arrived on the scene and found the truck leaning over the embankment against a large tree.

“The cab of the truck had burst into flames. After some time, Fire Services were able to extinguish the blaze. Once the flames had been extinguished, paramedics found the body of a man lying inside the cab of the vehicle,” he said.

“Unfortunately, the man had already succumbed to his numerous burn wounds. Nothing could be done for him and he was declared dead.”

The cause of the accident was not known and would be investigated.
