Johannesburg - Two women and a man were killed when their car rolled down an embankment outside Kuruman in the Northern Cape on Monday, said paramedics.

Two other people sustained minor and moderate injuries, said ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson.

"Paramedics on scene explained that the vehicle rolled quite a distance down the embankment, and all five of the vehicle's occupants were ejected," she said.

Three occupants were declared dead on the scene and the survivors were transported to a local hospital.

"This appeared to have been a single vehicle accident, and the reason as to why the vehicle left the road and rolled down the embankment is still under investigation by local authorities," said Jackson.
