Johannesburg - Two people died and two others were critically injured when a car they were travelling in overturned several times along Wedela Road in Carletonville on Sunday.

Paramedics arrived at the scene just after 05.00 to find two men several meters away from the mangled Toyota RunX. The car had wedged itself onto the road's embankment during the accident, ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said.

"There was nothing that paramedics could do for them and they were declared dead on the scene."

A third man was found underneath the car while the fourth was found lying about 20 meters from the vehicle. They had both been critically injured.

They were treated for multiple injuries before being taken to nearby hospitals for further treatment, Vermaak said.

The cause of the accident was unclear.
