Man killed in Free State crash
Johannesburg - A man was killed and another was seriously injured when a truck and a military vehicle collided on the N1 outside Kroonstad in the Free State on Saturday evening, paramedics said.
Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said a passenger in one of the vehicles sustained critical injuries and died as a result.
"The driver was in a serious condition and was treated and stabilised at the scene before he was transported by ambulance to the Netcare Kroon Hospital."
He said it looked as if the articulated truck and the military vehicle had been travelling in the same direction when one slammed into the rear of the other.
