A woman was killed and two men sustained serious injuries when a vehicle collided head-on with a truck on the R45 in Stellenbosch yesterday morning.
ER24 spokesman Werner Vermaak says: “Shortly after 9am, paramedics from ER24 and various other services arrived on the scene where they found a light motor vehicle wedged underneath the front of the truck.
“A woman was found with fatal injuries in the vehicle. Sadly, there was nothing that emergency services could do for her and she was declared dead on the scene.”
Vermaak says the driver and his passenger in the truck were also trapped.
“The driver was in a critical condition. Metro Emergency Services as well as Fire and Rescue Services had to use rescue tools to free them from the truck’s cabin. They were later transported to Mediclinic Stellenbosch for further care.”
He added that the exact cause of the collision is not yet known.
