Bloemfontein - A woman died, two boys sustained critical injuries and another woman received minor injuries when a car lost control and rolled into the veld on Sunday morning on the N8 outside Bloemfontein, paramedics said.

"ER24 paramedics and other services arrived on scene and found that all occupants of the vehicle were ejected. A woman believed to be in her 30s was assessed. Unfortunately there was nothing paramedics could do for her. She was declared dead," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

"Two boys, believed to be 12 and 14, were assessed and found to have sustained critical injuries. They were provided with advanced life support treatment."

The accident took place on the N8 in Petrusburg, around one kilometre outside Bloemfontein.

The 14-year-old boy had to be airlifted to hospital. He was airlifted by ER24, while the boy thought to be 12-years-old and the woman who sustained minor injuries were taken to hospital by ambulance.
