Men killed in Brakpan car crash
Johannesburg - Two men were killed and another man and woman injured early Monday morning when two cars collided head-on on the R554 beneath the Barry Marais bridge near Carnival City in Brakpan, east of Johannesburg, paramedics said.
"Common cause information suggests that an errant party strayed from their allocated lane and pushed into oncoming traffic," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks.
The collision caused one car to overturn and roll repeatedly.
Paramedics arrived on the scene to find the driver and passenger in the rolled car had sustained critical injuries. Both were declared dead on the scene.
The man and woman in the other car were found lying near it and were treated on the scene by paramedics, said Wicks.
The man was seriously injured while the woman was in a critical condition. The two were transported to a private medical facility for further treatment.
Police were investigating.
