When paramedics arrived on the scene, they found the crumpled remains of both vehicles, Netcare 911 spokeswoman Santi Steinmann said.

The three people travelling in the car were all killed, while one person travelling in the minibus died in the accident on Saturday night.

“Eight people from the minibus were found to have sustained injuries ranging from serious to critical,” she said.

“A critically injured occupant of the minibus was entrapped in the vehicle and services had to make use of the Jaws of Life to extricate the injured patient from the minibus.”

The eight injured people were treated on scene and transported to hospital for further care
