“The bakkie appeared to be ripped in half from the collision,” ER24 spokesman Russel Meiring said.

“On assessment, paramedics discovered the bodies of six people, including a young child, lying around the scene.”

Three of the injured were critical and airlifted to Tshepong Hospital. The cause of the accident was not known.
