This morning Netcare 911 Paramedics were called to a head-on collision on the N12 about 15 kilometres from Potchefstroom. Exact detail to the cause of the crash and preceding events is still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation and comment.
Netcare 911 paramedics arrived at the scene and found accident debris and the twisted frames of the vehicles spread over a large area, some of the injured were still trapped in the wreckages. While firemen used the Jaws of Life to free the injured, the paramedics worked tirelessly to stabilise the wounded. After triaging all the injured it was found that the two occupants from a VW polo had tragically died due to the extensive injuries that they sustained. Two others were in a critical condition.
After the patients were stabilised at the scene by advanced life support paramedics, they transported them to a nearby hospital for the care that they required.
