3 die as car rolls in Houghton
Johannesburg - Three people were killed when a car rolled on Oxford Road in Houghton Estate, Johannesburg on Thursday morning, paramedics said.
Four others were seriously injured in the accident at the intersection with 11th Avenue in the early hours of the morning, Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.
Paramedics found the car wedged against a tree, with two women already dead. A critically injured man was removed from the wreckage with hydraulic rescue equipment. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him, but he died on the scene.
The remaining four passengers were taken to hospitals in the area. Police would investigate, but it was thought the driver lost control of the car.
