2009-07-10 00:00

A COLLISION involving three cars at the corner of Alexandra and French roads on Wednesday evening has landed two people in hospital, one in a critical condition and another in a serious condition.

According to Captain Dolf Otto, the head of the collision unit, it is alleged that the driver of a bakkie was driving from Southgate towards town. He lost control of the vehicle as he was crossing the French Road intersection at the corner of Alexandra Road. This resulted in him veering into oncoming traffic and colliding head-on with another vehicle.

A third vehicle slammed into the back of the bakkie, but none of the occupants of the light vehicles were injured.

The injured driver of the bakkie and his passenger are both believed to be males in their twenties. — WR.
