    Driver dead in bakkie and truck collision, in Polokwane

    A man was killed after a bakkie and truck collided on the N1 highway outside Polokwane in Limpopo on Thursday, 30 June.


    According to ER24, its paramedics and other services arrived at the scene to find the bakkie on the road while the truck had stopped some distance away in the emergency lane.

    On closer inspection, medics found a man lying trapped inside the bakkie in a critical condition.

    “Rescue Services had to use specialised equipment to free the man from the bakkie. 

    “Once released, medics treated the man and provided him with advanced life support before he was transported to Mediclinic Limpopo for urgent care. Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injuries in hospital.


    The driver of the truck, fortunately, escaped serious injury. Local authorities were reportedly also on the scene for further investigations.


    Merely two months after announcing the return on South African roads, a collision involving a Greyhound bus claimed the lives of six people last night, Tuesday, 28 June.

    Six people died following the crash between a Greyhound bus and a bakkie 5 km outside Richmond in the Northern Cape.

    It is alleged the bus tried overtaking a truck on a double lane and crashed into the bakkie. Local authorities were on the scene for assistance and further investigations.

    Greyhound did acknowledge the accident, however, the company faced some backlash for lack of compassion from other family members.
