Johannesburg - A man has died and four others were injured when their car overturned outside Kroonstad, paramedics said on Wednesday.

The Toyota Conquest had left the highway, rolled into a nearby field and slammed into a tree, ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said.

The driver was treated for broken bones as well as a head injury. He and the three other occupants, a man with a broken leg and two women with moderate injuries, were taken to hospital.

"One occupant was found lying on the outside of the car, near to where it had come to rest up against the tree. The passenger appears to have been flung out of the car and suffered multiple injuries which lead to him being declared dead on scene."

Jackson said all of the occupants were believed to be in their late 20s.

"There was no indication that another vehicle had been involved to cause the accident, and local police will investigate."
