Johannesburg - A man was killed and two others seriously injured when a car and bakkie collided on Kraalkop Road in Fochville, near Carletonville, Gauteng, on Sunday night, paramedics said.

"Common cause information indicates that an errant party veered from their allocated lane and veered into oncoming traffic," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeff Wicks.

"The two collided and skidded to a halt near the initial point of impact."

Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the man in a critical condition and two others who had sustained serious injuries.

"All were treated and stabilised at the roadside and transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital," said Wicks.

The critically injured man died from injuries sustained.

Police were investigating.
