Bloemfontein - Five people were killed when a car and a heavy goods truck collided on the N3 near Warden in the early hours of Monday morning.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said a child was among the dead.

He described their deaths as a tragedy.

“Five people tragically died in a head-on crash along the N3 South near Warden this morning. The cause of the collision is still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation,” he said.

“Paramedics and the emergency services arrived at the scene and found the crumpled remains of the vehicle and accident debris obstructing the highway,” Botha said.

“The occupants were still trapped in the wreckage. After triaging it was found that four adults and a child died as a result of extensive injuries they sustained. The driver from the truck escaped from this crash uninjured but visibly traumatised,” he said.
