Johannesburg - Two men were killed when their bakkie smashed head-on into a tree alongside a road in Benoni, paramedics said on Sunday.

ER 24 spokesperson Andre Visser said it appeared as if the bakkie which the men were travelling in on Saturday evening went out of control and veered off a wet road between smallholdings in the area.

"The men were found to have sustained fatal injuries and were still trapped inside a wrecked bakkie when paramedics arrived," he said.

The men, in their 20s, were declared dead at the scene due to the injuries they had sustained.

The cause of the accident was being investigated.

    RIP to the men. I hope there were geniune reasons for this accident and that two young lives weren't lost to drunk driving, speeding or other such avoidables.

    Words can't begin to explain the emptiness in our hearts. We know you're staring back at us smiling and trying to tell us not to cry but smile and laugh!!! Our prayers go out to your families ... Tomorrow we say our final goodbyes and we'll do it like you will be remembered.

    @rude awakening that joke was sick and I really hope that all your loved ones have a GPS or a map book to rely on for directions so that you won't ever have to go through something as tragic as this. Next time please use your words more wisely then in situations like this.
