Two cars collided head-on on Commissioner road, killing three men and two women.

Another woman was taken by ambulance to Tambo Memorial hospital with serious injuries, spokesman William Ntladi said on Sunday.

“Specialised rescue tools – Jaws of Life – had to be used to free four of the deceased out of the wreckage, while the fifth body was apparently flung out of one of the vehicles during impact.”

“An inquest docket has been opened by traffic officers on the scene for further investigations,” Ntladi said.
