The women were driving on Spanner Road when their car "fell into" a two metre deep ditch with a four metre wide opening, ER24 spokesperson Luyanda Majija said.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and assisted fire department personnel who were helping the woman emerge from the hole.

The women had pulled themselves out of the car and were climbing out of the ditch using a ladder.

Paramedics treated the women who were in shock, for minor injuries and thereafter transported them to a nearby hospital for further medical care.
