4 killed in Bloemfontein crash
Bloemfontein - Four people were killed when the driver of a VW Golf carrying seven people hit a tree in Bloemfontein, ER24 paramedics said on Wednesday.
The driver apparently lost control taking a corner on the N8 and hit the tree "at speed", spokesperson Andre Visser said in a statement.
There were six men and a woman, aged between 17 and 23, in the car. Rescue workers and firefighters had to cut them from the wreckage.
Three of the occupants were declared dead on the scene. A fourth died in hospital later.
The injured were taken to Pelonomi Hospital.
