Johannesburg - A man was killed and two others injured in an accident involving three trucks and a bakkie in Germiston on Saturday, paramedics said.

A truck had broken down on the N3 highway at the M2 split in Germiston around 08:00, after which three other vehicles collided into it, ER24 spokesperson Vanessa Jackson said.

A truck collided into the back of the broken down truck, a bakkie crashed into the second truck and a third truck then collided into the back of the bakkie.

"Sadly the driver of the bakkie was killed while his brother who was sitting next to him suffered only minor injuries," she said.

"The driver of the truck that is thought to have initially broken down was left with critical head injuries and both patients were transported to hospital for care of their injuries."
