Johannesburg - Two people died and one was injured when their double cab bakkie hit a tree in Alberton on Tuesday night, said Ekurhuleni metro police.

Spokesperson Kobeli Mokheseng said they were travelling on the K146 towards Eden Park when something disturbed the driver and he lost control of the bakkie.

The vehicle swerved right, into a veld where it crashed into a tree.

"There was no report of another motor vehicle involved," he said.

Two women in the bakkie, aged 26 and 60, died on the scene. The 36-year-old driver was injured and was taken to the Natalspruit hospital.

A case of culpable homicide had been opened at the Brackendowns police station.

    People have died. How would you like allegations of fellatio being made if it was your family? Show some sensitivity people. Also, why the sensationalist reporting about the vehicle being a double cab bakkie? The vehicle make, type or size doesn't matter. People were killed in a single vehicle accident.

      Antonio, your feeble attempts at humour show your level of sophistication. Remember that a bunch of paper qualifications do not represent your education. Education is the ability to judge whether your or others behaviour is ethical and will not prejudice or harm other people and behave accordingly. Robert Mugabe has six degrees and is still not educated. You fail. Hopefully you and your sense of humour will mature.
