Johannesburg - Transport Minister Dipuo Peters has sent her condolences to the families of five people who were killed in an accident in KwaNdengezi, KwaZulu-Natal, on Monday.

"We wish all families strength in this difficult period and assure them of our moral and possible material support," Peters said on Tuesday.

"We advise families of the deceased and the injured to work closely with our agencies, notably the Road Accident Fund, to access help in one form or another."

The accident took place on Monday morning on Old Richmond Road.

Two people died when a motorist lost control of his Toyota Corolla and veered into the oncoming lane, colliding with another vehicle.

One of the vehicles caught fire and another three people died on scene. Two others were critically injured.

Peters urged motorists to reduce the number of fatalities on roads by exercising caution.
