Johannesburg - A man was killed and three others seriously injured on the N2 highway near Athlone in Cape Town on Sunday morning, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Andre Visser said four people were ejected from a car when it overturned after it collided with a barrier near the Jan Smuts off-ramp.

"The vehicle then came to a standstill in a water-filled ditch where a man was trapped underneath it."

The man died shortly after he was pulled from under the car. The injured were taken to Groote Schuur Hospital.

It was believed the car veered out of control before leaving the road.
