Johannesburg - Three men were killed in an accident on the N1 near Brandfort on Wednesday, Free State paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said the accident happened around 04:00 on Wednesday.

"It is believed a car crashed into the back of a truck before being catapulted into oncoming traffic."

She said the car then crashed into a Corsa bakkie travelling in the opposite direction.

"Two men were flung from the car while the remaining man was trapped in the crumpled wreck," said Jackson.

All three men were declared dead on the scene. She said three people from the Corsa bakkie sustained minor injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital.

      Speed doesn't kill, it's the sudden deceleration that's the culprit.
