Two vehicles collided head-on with men losing their lives on Sunday afternoon.
The fatal accident occurred at the Tamboekiesfontein Road outside Vosloorus, south of Ekurhuleni.
“The City’s Disaster and Emergency Management Services (DEMS) received the call at 12:54 Sunday asking for their intervention. On arrival, one driver of Toyota Conquest was found trapped behind steering wheel and unfortunately he and his front passenger were declared dead by paramedics,” explained DEMS spokesperson William Ntladi.
One other rear seat passenger was hospitalized with serious multiple body injuries.
In the second vehicle, all three occupants escaped with serious multiple injuries.
All the injured were transported by ambulances to nearby hospital.
The road was partially closed for traffic during rescue operations and scene investigation by EMPD officers.
“It is alleged that both vehicles were driving in two opposite directions on a barrier line and both crashed head on,” Ntladi said.
