A woman in her 40s was killed and a man seriously injured this afternoon after a truck and bakkie collided on the Pretoria Road in Kempton Park.
ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene and found both the truck and light motor vehicle smashed together on the side of the road.
On inspection, paramedics found the lifeless body of a woman in her 40s lying trapped inside the bakkie.
Paramedics quickly assessed the woman and found that she had sustained multiple fatal injuries. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the woman and shew was declared dead on scene.
The driver of the truck, a man, was found seated on the ground roughly 20 metres away from the scene. It is understood that the man had been pulled from the truck by members of the community.
ER24 paramedics assessed the man and found that he was in a serious condition. He was treated for his injuries and thereafter transported to Arwyp Hospital for urgent treatment.
Rescue services later removed the deceased from the bakkie using specialised rescue equipment.
Local authorities were on scene to investigate further.
