Four men die in Germiston crash
Johannesburg - Four men died when their bakkie collided with a truck on the M2 east, near Germiston on Monday, said Johannesburg metro police.
"The driver of the bakkie and his three male passengers were killed in the crash," said spokesperson Wayne Minnaar.
He said the Volkswagen bakkie was towing an Opel Astra when it hit a truck and trailer.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
Three lanes on the highway had to be closed to traffic, causing a back-up.
Minnaar advised motorists to instead use Marshall Street in Germiston or the M1 north.
