Johannesburg - Four people died and two others were critically injured when their bakkie hit a truck head on in Goldwana on Wednesday, Mpumalanga police said.

"Five men in the double cab bakkie were travelling on the N4 towards Nelspruit early this morning (on Wednesday)," said spokesperson Abie Khoabane.

"We don't know the exact details, except that the bakkie hit a truck head-on travelling in the opposite direction."

Four people in the bakkie died at the scene and the drivers of both vehicles were in a critical condition in hospital.

Khoabane said a case of culpable homicide was being investigated.
