A 4-month-old baby and a man died after they were thrown from their vehicle in a crash on the N14 near Brandvlei, west of Johannesburg, paramedics said on Tuesday.

It appeared that the vehicle overturned several times, ejecting the baby and a man believed to be in his early thirties, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

Both were declared dead on the scene.

Two men and a woman were found inside the vehicle. They sustained various injuries which ranged from scrapes, bruises and possible back and neck injuries.

Vermaak said the driver of the vehicle fled the scene before paramedics arrived. It was unclear if he sustained any injuries.

The accident happened at 22:00 on Monday evening.

Authorities were investigating the incident.
