    Two dead, one injured in Vanderbijlpark bakkie collision

    Two men have died and another has suffered moderate injuries in a bakkie collision with a tree on Delfos Boulevard, Vanderbijlpark in Gauteng.   

    The incident reportedly happened on Sunday, 5 June 2022. 


    Paramedics were reportedly on the scene along with Emfuleni Fire and SAPS. 

    According to ER24, one male patient was found sitting up against another tree away from the vehicle having self extricated. 

    He was found to have suffered moderate injuries and was treated and transported to hospital.

    “Two adult men were found entrapped in the bakkie showing no signs of life. They were both declared dead on arrival by ER24. Emfuleni Fire were on hand for the extraction of the deceased.

    “The details surrounding the incident are unknown by ER24, however the South African Police Services were on the scene for further investigation.”



    In an unrelated incident, a 57-year-old man suffered critical injuries in a single-vehicle rollover on the R526, 12 km from Gravelotte, East of Tzaneen, in Limpopo on Saturday. 

    When paramedics arrived, the man was still lying inside the vehicle. 

    According to ER24, a spine board was used to immobilise and extract him from the vehicle.
