Bloemfontein - Two people burnt to death when their car burst into flames after a crash on the Dewetsburg Road, near Bloemfontein, on Friday, paramedics said.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said the vehicle was hit from behind by another car travelling in the same direction.

It veered out of control, came to rest and burst into flames.

Paramedics arrived to find that the two people inside had burnt to death.

Wicks said the other car veered into a field. The driver ran away.

    Terrible tragedy and horrific way to die. RIP. Someone wasn't observing a safe following distance. No wonder he ran away. Probably an unlicensed driver.

    So instead of trying to remove the 2 people from the burning car and possibly saving their lives the idiot who caused th crash ran away. I hope his conicence eats him alive.
