Bakkie and car collide injuring three outside Carletonville


Three people were injured this morning following a collision between a bakkie and light motor vehicle on the Reismierbult Road outside of Carletonville.

ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene to find the bakkie far off into the veld while the light motor vehicle was parked on the side of the road.

On closer inspection, paramedics found one man lying next to the light motor vehicle while two men were found seated inside the bakkie.

Paramedics carefully extricate the two men from the bakkie and assessed all the patients, finding that they had sustained minor to moderate injuries.

The patients were treated for their injuries and thereafter transported to various hospitals including Mediclinic Potchefstroom.

It is believed that on of the vehicles had turned infront of the other, apparently causing the collision.

Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
