AN elderly couple and a relative were killed in a head-on collision in the midlands on Tuesday evening.

The 60-year-old woman, her elderly husband and another man were killed when their Mazda 323 collided head-on with a Toyota Venture near Wartburg. The men were killed on impact, but Netcare 911 paramedics struggled for an hour to save the woman before she was declared dead, said spokesperson Jeff Wicks.

Two other people in the Mazda and the occupants of the Venture were injured.
