Man burns to death as medics try to help
Mbombela - A man burned to death when the bakkie he was driving rolled and burst into flames on the N4 near the Witbank offramp, Mpumalanga, on Saturday, paramedics said.
While the cause of the accident was not known, it appeared the bakkie rolled several times before catching alight at 11:00, Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.
Paramedics were unable to put out the blaze and rescue the man, who was trapped inside the wreckage.
When the fire services doused the flames, medics examined the man and declared him dead on the scene.
