Johannesburg - A woman was killed in an accident in Benoni on the East Rand on Saturday morning, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said paramedics arrived at the scene to discover a bakkie was lying on its side.

"The driver who was believed to have been ejected from the vehicle was found near to the accident," he said.

"Paramedics assessed the patient and found she had already succumbed to her injuries and was declared deceased on scene."

Banks said the police would investigate the exact cause of the accident but early indications were that the woman had lost control of the bakkie and it rolled.

No one else was injured.

    I also drove past the scene this morning, family seemed distraught. Not sure how the accident unraveled but the bakkie was a wreck. It was certainly a wake up call for me. Condolences to the family.

    I saw this lady loading sand on her bakkie at Mannys in Benoni 10 minutes before the accident happened, As I came out of Mannys I saw the accident scene. According to a worker from Mannys there was a child with her in the vehicle, does anyone know something about this?
