Mbombela - Two men died and two others were seriously injured when the bakkie they were travelling overturned on the N12 highway near Delmas in Mpumalanga on Sunday evening, paramedics said.

"The cause of the accident and the series of events leading up to it remain uncertain and will form the subject of a SA police force investigation," Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said.

In a statement he said it appeared that the vehicle was travelling west when the driver lost control.

"The bakkie veered sharply through the centre reservation and over the other carriageway."

When paramedics arrived at the scene they found the two men had been flung from the bakkie.

"Both had sustained critical injuries and died at the scene."

Two others were in a serious condition and were transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
