Bakkie rollover injures two in Welkom

Two men, believed to be in their late 30s, were left seriously injured this afternoon when their bakkie overturned on Ararat Road in Welkom.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find the bakkie sitting upright on the middle island between the two roads. One of the two occupants was found lying outside the vehicle while the second lay inside. A large crowd had already begun to gather.

On assessment, paramedics found that both patients had sustained serious injuries in the collision and required rapid treatment.

Once treatment was complete, both patients were transported to Mediclinic Welkom for urgent treatment.

It is unknown how the vehicle came to roll, but authorities were on scene for further investigations.
