Five killed in Mpumalanga crash

Five people were killed when four vehicles collided on the N4 between Malelane and Komatipoort, the Mpumalanga community safety department said on Thursday.

Nine other people sustained serious injuries in the crash, around 8.30pm on Wednesday, spokesman Joseph Mabuza said.

The driver of a car apparently overtook a truck on a barrier line and collided head-on with a Toyota Quantum minibus. The truck then collided with the trailer the minibus was towing and another vehicle. Three people in the car and two in the minibus were killed.
