Johannesburg - Four people were critically injured when their bakkie overturned on the N3 highway and caught fire near De Hoek Toll Plaza, outside Johanneburg, on Sunday, said paramedics.

The driver lost control of the bakkie and it rolled repeatedly, stopping in the centre reservation before catching fire, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks.

All the occupants were flung from the bakkie as it rolled.

One of the injured was airlifted to the Thembisa State Hospital. The other three were transported by ambulance to a state hospital near Villiers, said Wicks.

    Who does News24 have writing their reports for them...the headline should be "when rolled" not "when rolls" - it happened, it's past tense...clearly editors and/or proof readers are not doing their jobs!!!
