They were passengers in a vehicle which collided with a double-cab bakkie at the intersection of Middle and Rondebult roads in Boksburg at 14:10, spokesperson William Ntladi said in a statement.

A rescue team arrived to find three people, including a 3-month-old baby, trapped in the other vehicle, an Opel Corsa Lite, he said.
